Anais Nin wrote her diary at the end of 1931, at the close of a sexually tumultuous and emotional year as part of a ménage a trois with fellow writer Henry Miller and his beautiful wife June Mansfield.

'I really believe that if I were not a writer, not a creator, not an experimenter, I might have been a very faithful wife.' Nin's passionate and consuming relationship with Henry & June transformed a previously monogamous wife into an uninhibited and sexually liberated woman. Henry & June is a forthright and riveting account of a woman discovering her sensuality.

Our production is read by Cherie Lunghi. As a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company she has appeared in London and Stratford in many of its productions. Amongst her many film appearances have been Roland Joffe's 'The Mission', John Boorman's 'Excalibur' and Kenneth Branagh's 'Frankenstein'. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Though I'm a huge Anais Nin journal fan, and though I certainly enjoy sexually explicit material, I had higher hopes for this, the unexpurgated version. I think it would be made infinitely better by the integration back into the main meat of the diary, so her *integrated* sexual encounters can be read in the context of her daily activities and musings, and not isolated from them. "

    " I love Anais Nin. She is a beautiful and eloquent writer that does an amazing job of transforming her feelings/emotions into words. In love with her writing. "

    " it's Anais -- what can I say? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shiloh | 1/11/2014

    " This book kicked my ass. I will have to read it again to say anything sensical about it. Also would help to go through the previously published journals, this one was published after Nin's death. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ariadne . | 10/13/2013

    " When I started reading this book, I really didn't know what to expect, but after starting I just couldn't stop. I liked how she purged herself in her diary and how devastating truthful she was in her love for Hugo her husband, Henry her lover and June her fantasy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meshel Levitan | 5/26/2013

    " Nin has such a beauty with words. Her writing, as well a subject matter, is so sensual. She made reading fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 5/17/2013

    " I got lost in the words reading this book. I can't quite put my finger on it but there was something about this book that just transports you into a different kind of world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawna Massengill | 3/11/2013

    " Most romantic account I've ever read. I felt like I was reading my own diary. "

    " steamy and sexy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 11/29/2011

    " In a word: Sexy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Quietdrabble | 10/27/2011

    " "I don't know through what crevice our love will suddenly seep out and spend itself." Page after page of deliciously written, thought provoking, raw content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley Abbott | 10/11/2011

    " This book really shows Anais' neurotic and contradictory states. A good story but I felt like it was a lot of her running in circles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 8/8/2011

    " This was a very formative book for me, and as I think about it now, helps explain how I frame relationships to this day. That's a scary bit of self realization, I have to say. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 7/26/2011

    " Still processing.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 6/1/2011

    " I love this book. Spying into a brilliant woman writer's thoughts and experiences of love, sex and eroticism. One of her lovers- Henry Miller. So well written. This book is SO HOTT. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 11/9/2010

    " Like an eloquent soap opera in literary form. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia Reppe | 11/4/2010

    " I just love Anais Nin, but the depravity in this book prevents it from being one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 10/9/2010

    " This woman was amazing. Neurotic, but she admits that. Although she is a lot different from me, I still found parts of myself reflected in her pages, and it was sad and beautiful at once. I really enjoyed reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiana Cassidy | 5/28/2010

    " I almost felt like I was reading one of my own journals while reading this. Anais' writing style is so close to my own, and I share many of her thoughts. Very inspiring read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 5/22/2010

    " Amazing. As anything by Henry Miller is. The letter to Anais Nin on her 36th birthday is a highlight. "
