Product Description

The Winter of Artifice was originally published by Obelisk Press in Paris during the summer of 1939. It contained three novelettes, one of which, "Djuna," was the fictionalized Henry-June-Anais relationship. This novelette was lost with the onset of war and the death of the publisher, Jack Kahane, all a few weeks after the book's release. The American version of the same title was heavily edited to escape the censors and to appeal to a less open American readership, and in the process the original book was lost to history. However, in 2007, Sky Blue Press created a facsimile of the original 1939 edition and published it nearly 70 years after the fact. Only in this edition will you see this version of Nin's writing, a version that was heavily influenced by Henry Miller, who wrote volumnous notes in the margins of the manuscript and insisted that Nin write more "realism," a style which she rejected shortly thereafter. A small edition of a hardcover version is available to readers now, perhaps never to be seen again thereafter due to restrictions of the print run.
