Reading is Sexy

My resolution at the moment is to read more (books, not magazines). I am beginning with the most passionate and iconic of literary couples: Henry Miller and Anais Nin. Currently I am interested in all things '30s and '40s, and I think Miller and Nin captured the social mores and preoccupations of these decades most vividly: especially the burgeoning interest in psychoanalysis, freedom, sex, and passion. Anais Nin especially lived through the medium of literary creation, and projected herself and her ideals and the way she would like to be perceived throughout her works. Be seduced.
