I loved the erotic element in Nin's other writings; here she focusses instead on the human element, exploring personalities and sensibilities, her writing suffused with clear detail and telling anecdotes. It was an entertaining read but also somehow disposable given the impact of her other work. ( )

Book description
In Collages Anaïs Nin reveals the kaleidoscopic patterns of life with the vividness of dreams. Set against the continually changing backgrounds of Vienna, Mexico, California and New York, we encounter, among others, the girl Raven who becomes interchangeabe with her pet bird; the old life-guard who prefers to live, and die, with seals rather than with his garrulous family and the artist frustrated by his scientific daughter's inability to comprehend the beauty of disarray. Exploring the fragmentary nature of the world, Anaïs Nin creates images with words as magnificently colourful and evocative as any combinatioin of materials on canvas.
