'There are so many minor senses, all running like tributaries into the mainstream of sex, nourishing it. Only the united beat of sex and heart together can create ecstasy.' These exquisitely sensual stories, peopled with prostitutes, aristocracy,artists, mistresses and lovers, unfold against the opulent decadence of Bohemian Paris. Profoundly erotic, they depict a world where passion may be satisfied in any number of ways and the only limits to pleasure are the boundaries of the imagination. In her attention to detail, to the look, sound and taste of all she describes, Anais Nin truly created her own 'language of the senses' when she wrote Delta of Venus.
