Summary

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'.

A quest into human mind

I was more captivated with the narration than I thought I would be. There is something poetic about the flow of thought, even if it does suddenly leap somewhere totally new and is at times hard to follow. An interesting view into the mind of someone who tries to find themselves in a world too rigid for their needs.

Confusing Narrator

The narrator's voice is a low, breathy contralto. Very low. Although she is an excellent reader, the deep quality of her voice makes this already melodramatic text a caricature of itself. It flattens the quality of the listening experience, and makes it hard to take the content seriously.

Good but...

I didn't realize this wasn't the full book. That was my fault. Overall it was good and I felt like the reader did well.
