Collages - Anaïs Nin, Jean Varda The more I read Anais Nin's works, the more I appreciate her as a writer. This book introduces us to many very interesting characters a young girl meets on her travels. I love how Nin can turn a simple event into beautiful poetry, and also how differently she looks at different aspects of life.This is one of the kinds of books you will just want to read again and again to appreciate the beautiful prose.
