Author Bio
Anais Nin
Nin's father was a Cuban pianist, her mother a French-Danish singer. When her father deserted the family, Nin's mother took her three children to New York City, where Nin refused to go to school, educating herself through her wide reading. She was married at 21 to Hugh Guiler, an artist and (under the name Ian Hugo) film-maker. They moved to Paris, where she began keeping the diaries (in the form of letters to her lost father) that would make her famous. In Paris, she met Henry Miller--a lifelong friend, lover, and mentor. She also briefly became involved with psychoanalysis, studying with Otto Rank; her first novel, heavily influenced by him, was published in 1936. She and her husband returned to New York, where she lived in Greenwich Village and began publishing her own works, which gradually acquired an extensive cult following. In 1966, with the publication of the first volume of her diary, she became internationally known: an inspiration to women because of her frank exploration of women's lives. She had only one child, a stillborn daughter, whose birth she described movingly in a short story. She died in Los Angeles, of cancer, when she was 73.
