Anais Nin

Born today (February 21) in 1903, French writer Anais Nin was the ultimate femme fatale, a passionate and mysterious woman

World famous for her steamy love affairs and extravagant bedroom exploits, the most notable was her simultaneous affairs with Henry and June Miller.

In the mid 1920s, eager to break the confines of American Victorianism both as an artist and a woman, Nin travelled to Paris, where she fell in with the legendary artistic and literary circles of the Left Bank.

For the rest of her life she lived as a liberated woman - an author of more than a dozen books, an uninhibited lover of both men and women, and an independent figure within the avant-garde worlds of Paris, Los Angeles, and New York.
