Summary
"I first met Anais in 1962 at her Village apartment, when I was an eighteen-year-old virgin." And so begins Tristine Rainer's years as Anais Nin's accomplice, keeping Nin's confidences-including that of her bigamy-even after Nin's death and the passing of her husbands, until now. Apprenticed to Venus charts Rainer's coming of age under the guidance of Anais Nin: lover to Henry Miller, Parisian diarist, author of the erotic bestseller Delta of Venus, and feminist icon of the sexual revolution. As an inexperienced young woman, Tristine was dazzled by the sophisticated bohemian author and sought her instruction in becoming a woman. From their first meeting in Greenwich Village through Nin's death in 1977, Tristine remained a fixture of Anais Nin's inner circle, implicated in the mysterious author's secrets-while simultaneously finding her own way through love, lust, and loss. From personal memories to dramatized scenarios based on Nin's revelations to the author, Apprenticed to Venus blurs the lines between novel and memoir, bringing Anais Nin to life in new way-a pioneer whose mantra was, "A woman has as much right to pleasure as a man!" A compelling look at the intricacies-and risks-of female friendship and the mentor-protege relationship, Tristine Rainer's Apprenticed to Venus is the intimate story of an entanglement only she could tell"--
