As Anaïs Nin was preparing to receive Henry Miller for the first time in the fall of 1931, she declared: "Violence will meet delicacy!" She was referring to Henry Miller the pornographer and pleasure-seeker, and herself, the reserved, shy and innocent flower. But if Anaïs Nin was sexually inexperienced at the time, she would not stay so for long. She expected him to guide her, and he expected her to nourish his desires. But soon the student would outgrow the teacher, blossoming in her sexuality and never giving up her search for ecstasy. In this seductive biography, Françoise Rey re-ignites the famous couple's passionate story.
