In Favor of the Sensitive Man and Other Essays

In Favor of the Sensitive Man and Other Essays

Essays, lectures, and interviews—on everything from gender relations to Ingmar Bergman to adventure travel—from the renowned diarist. In this collection, the author known for “one of the most remarkable diaries in the history of letters” shares her unique perceptions of people, places, and the arts (Los Angeles Times). In the opening group of essays, “Women and Men,” Anaïs Nin provides the kind of sensitive insights into the feminine psyche and relations between the sexes that are a hallmark of her work. In “Writing, Music, and Films,” she speaks as an artist and critic—in book and film reviews, an essay on the composer Edgard Varèse, a lecture on Ingmar Bergman, and the story of her printing press. In the final section, “Enchanted Places,” Nin records her travels to such destinations as Fez and Agadir in Morocco, Bali, the New Hebrides, and New Caledonia—and she concludes with a charming vignette titled “My Turkish Grandmother.”
