In Harms’ review, she concludes: “This book belongs in the personal library of all those who love Nin’s work and to university and public libraries around the world.” You can read the entire review by clicking here.

    I find everything about her statement here in direct contrast with what Nin would say if she could comment today… when she states “Writing is my work; my life is elsewhere.” Perhaps, that is the problem here. I too tend to believe in Nin’s belief that writing should be your life. You should love what you do and or you are not making a difference with your writing on the world. Shameful really. Sorry to leave such a negative comment. Just thought I would voice my opinion.

    On a different note, thank you for the amazing blog!
