Biography:
(1903-1977) Novelist, diarist, erotic writer. Born in Paris, Nin moved at age eleven to New York City with her mother and her brothers. In 1923, she married a banker, writer and illustrator named Hugo Guiler, and moved with Guiler to Paris. It was in Paris in the pre-World War II years that Nin and Guiler supported various avant-garde artists, among them Henry Miller, who Nin met in 1931 and began an affair with in 1932.
