Waste Of Timelessness : And Other Early Stories Paperback / softback
by Anais Nin
Written when Anais Nin was in her twenties and living in Louveciennes, France, these stories contain many elements that will delight her readers: details remembered from childhood, of life in Paris, the cafes, theatres; characters including dancers, artists, writers, women who devote themselves to their work and visions as well as romance, strangers met in the night; themes such as the scruples of lovers, the search for brilliant, imaginative living; the writer's experimentation with exotic words like "sybaritic" and "violaceous".
In the craft of these stories readers are treated to a deft sense of humor, ironic wit, much conversation as well as ecstatic prose, and surprise endings.
Throughout all, the Nin personality shines, a wonderful mixture of feeling and rationality, of vulnerability and strength.
