E.P. Dutton & Company, 1946. First edition, ex-library copy.

Here we have Nin’s first novel in her five volume “continuous novel” in which she begins to explore the lives of four women and their interconnected stories — the inspiration for which she pulled from her later published journals. Nin’s writing is deep, revelatory, and erotic; a true feminist icon. Her worked paved the way for female written erotica in the west and the solidified herself as a master of the craft, often being called one of best and finest writers of in the genre.

The only acceptable ex to be in a relationship with is an ex-library copy; you can quote us on that one.
