LoveReading Expert Review of The Delta of Venus

ANAIS NIN - The famous diarist wrote the stories in DELTA OF VENUS, and other collections, specifically to order for a discerning rich collector of erotica and they have since become delicate classics, combining the sheer delicacy of female sexuality and a strong sense of place and nostalgia.

The Delta of Venus Synopsis

In Delta of Venus Anaïs Nin conjures up a glittering cascade of sexual encounters.
