I love this women heart and soul. The way her quirky and surreal prose, sketches across the paper never fails to impress me.
What I did not expect is surprise. I thought I knew a lot about Anais but there is always something new. All the artists and writers that have been inspired and fell in love with her never cease to amaze me. Now its Gore Vidals turn. Unbelievable! Whats next?? loved it.

I was so happy to finally get this new volume of "A Cafe in Space". I searched the index of Nin's diaries and read all of her edited entries on Vidal beforehand.
The research done for the first article on Vidal was amazing. To read all of Nin's diary entries, unedited, about Vidal was eye-opening and satisfying. In his lying, slanderous memoir, he shamelessly defames Nin, writing like a jilted adolescent. If you love Anais Nin, then this is a must-have.
