House Of Incest

Review by Colette Bennett

If "Henry & June" was the woman's quest to understand life in it's deepest form erotically, "Incest" is the journey to true humanity-through means creative, emotional, sexual, even spiritual. Anais perhaps does not realize the depth and meaning of a talismanic statement she uses only in passing in this journal: "Above all to creation." As her life forms itself out of her art and understanding of art as the personification of being ,she creates herself as the human true to the self without guilt. She grants herself the gift of absolute sight and grasp, of love unrestricted by boundary or document. We are shown the ultimate archetype of all relationships as she allows herself to understand them, including her reunion with her father, which being such an immense statement in itself, I leave for the reader to absorb.-"Incest" is a rich and complex book, beyond the simpler sexuality of "Henry & June" An incredible testament to spiritual growth, it is a book that must be read more than once. It has different universes to offer to each person. Which one you allow yourself to discover, as Miss Nin has so intimately shown us, is entirely up to you.

I begin to love as a human being,and the game ceases. - Incest
