Delta Of Venus
Very good in very good dust jacket.
In Delta of Venus, Anaïs Nin pens a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women, then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts; and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru.
A literary treasure: the recently discovered letters that chronicle the passionate affair of a young woman in Paris in 1928 While helping a friend clear out an old apartment in Paris, diplomat Jean-Yves Berthault came upon a leather portfolio that contained a collection of handwritten letters. After reading the first one, Berthault realized that he had stumbled upon an extraordinary correspondenceâ a charged and passionate epistolary love affair that brought to mind the French classics The Story of O, Justine, and Delta of Venus.
