Anaïs Nin a tenu son journal de 1914 à 1977. Ce premier volume met à jour ses relations avec son père incestueux et ses amours multiples marqués par la passion, la tendresse ou l'idéalisation. S'y mêlent les révélations impudiques, les fantasmes et aussi la réalité crue comme, en août 1934, l avortement de son enfant mort.

First words
My yieldingness to Henry is lost into the moist softness of him so wholly that all I know is just woman and penis, as if we were within the womb, both of us, swimming in rolling flesh and moisture which gives that supreme silkiness, a sensation which is the climax of all one experiences when naked in water, when touching silk, when vibrating in orgasm. It is that nakedness, that darkness, that blinding flesh-and-moisture feeling which is sex—from which I rise as from the most magic bath. And there is no end—for days I am still living in flesh-perception; for days life doesn't go to my head, it touches and surrounds me exactly as he touches me; life is a continuation of his caresses. He leaves the imprint of his flesh-visit on my skin, in my womb, and for days all I know is my legs. No world in the head ... world between the legs ... the dark, moist, live world.
