A slim collection of essays by Anais Nin. In this book, she writes about feminism, her ideas about psychology, erotica, man-woman relationships, literature, arts, personalities and places. One section of the book contains essays about her travels in non-European cities such as Fez, Bali, Morocco etc. She is someone who sees the best in other people and their cultures, and thereby, I suppose, gets maximum enjoyment out of travels. Something that is quite refreshing especially the kind of polarization the world is seeing today.
