An extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the mistress of erotic writing In Delta of Venus , Anais Nin pens a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts; and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru.

Surprisingly well written and at times thoughtful short stories. This is one of the best books I've read in this genre. Covers a great many areas from the general to the bizarre.
