There are many ways to be free. One of them is to transcend reality by imagination, as I try to do.

I've only read two of Nin's books - Little Birds and Delta of Venus. Any others you would rec?

I hate to appear unsophisticated in your eyes, but I haven't read any Nin. Of the two you've read, would you recommend one?

I would recommend both. They are both collections of erotica done in spare, poetic language. The stories aren't longer than 10- 12 pages - usually shorter. My impressions are of carribbean wrought iron balconies, Spanish-shawled ladies, dark-eyed artists and their pale skinned muses. Lovely.

Thank you! Your impressions intrigue me. I think I'll start with Little Birds!

I read them decades ago. I think you will like them. They are dreamy and at the same time sharp and pointed.
