Anais Nin's influence on me has been significant. More than 30 years ago, a close friend gave me one of her Diaries and she blew my mind. Here was a woman deeply stuck in the 20th century living mostly in the beginning and mid century, but more modern than many today. She introduced me to the idea that one can live an artful life. Being fascinated with the period between World Wars, Nin was another figure to know in the vast cast of everyone who lived in the early/mid 20th century.
