  • Anaeis Nin made her reputation through publication of her edited diaries and the carefully constructed persona they presented. It was not until decades later, when the diaries were published in their unexpurgated form, that the world began to learn the full details of Nins fascinating life and the emotional and literary high-wire acts she committed both in documenting it and in defying the mores of 1950s America.

    Trapeze begins where the previous volume, Mirages, left off: when Nin met Rupert Pole, the young man who became not only her lover but later her husband in a bigamous marriage.

    It marks the start of what Nin came to call her trapeze life, swinging between her longtime husband, Hugh Guiler, in New York and her lover, Pole, in California, a perilous lifestyle she continued until her death in 1977. Today what Nin did seems impossible, and what she sought perhaps was impossible: to find harmony and completeness within a split existence.

    It is a story of daring and genius, love and pain, largely unknown until now–

  • This is a wonderful heartrending, uplifting and hilarious read. About The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen(Hendrik Groen #1) It is obviously a take on Adrian Mole but featuring an elderly curmudgeon, Hendrik Groen. It is set in a north Amsterdam nursing care home which is going to experience a whistleblowing day to day account of the lives of an eccentric bunch of residents and the rules they are subjected to, documented in the diary.

    Hendrik is grumpy, cynical, politically incorrect, full of life, funny and a rebel with a cause. He has two friends, Evert and the assistant to the Administrator, Anja. The book does a stellar job in challenging the stereotypes and the invisibility of the elderly.The story begins with Hendrik deciding to write a diary to prevent himself sinking into a apathetic stupor and accepting that there is only the end of life to look forward to. There is an incident with the Aquarium in the care home which results in dead fish and a clash with management.

    A new resident arrives, Eefje, who just happens to be Hendriks dream woman. Before you know it, Hendrik is motivated into sprucing himself up to make the most of his physical assets and go in search of love. With a spark of rebellion we have a group of residents set up the Old But Not Yet Dead club whereby they support each other through their difficulties, declining health and tragedies.

    They organise day trips which does them a world of good in enlivening their days. This club comes to be envied by the rest of the inmates. After mulling it over for a while, Hendrik purchases a scooter which leads to a number of incidents and adventures.

    There is a strong element of growing old disgracefully which I could only applaud. Interspersed are the sorrows of getting older, dementia, strokes, the failing body and losing friends to death.There is a strong social and political commentary such as on the shortfalls in funding and the rules the elderly have to live under that drain their life force unnecessarily.

    The story is laced with wisdom and its themes have a universality that crosses borders of the specifics of a Dutch Care Home to be issues of global concern for all of us. This novel made me cry and laugh. I hope I dont take things lying down as I get older. Hendrik is a scintillating role model on how to get old. I loved this book and would urge others to read it. A highly recommended brilliant and enchanting read. Thanks to Penguin Michael Joseph for an ARC.

  • Alexa and the other children at her escuela in Costa Rica have a special project: they are raising American Crocodiles. She names her croc Jefe, which means boss, because he seems to be in charge of all the other babies. Alexa brings him chicken and frogs to eat, and writes about his progress in her diary.

    Soon, her little hatchling is as big as a loaf of bread. He has grown into a juvenile and it is time for Alexa to say goodbye and for Jefe to return to the wild.
