Description

When Anais Nin met the writer Henry Miller, a man she though of as an intellectual giant, and his beautiful wife June Mansfield, her life was plunged into emotional and sexual turmoil. Her passionate involvement with both of them, which contrasted profoundly with her attachment to her husband Hugo, led to an inner conflict she was unable to resolve without help. Henry and June is the account, taken from her diaries, of this thrilling but impossible tangle of relationships and of Anais Nin's personal and sexual awakening.
