Anais Nin s "Ladders to Fire" interweaves the stories of several women, each emotionally inhibited in her own way: through self-doubt, fear, guilt, moral drift, and distrust. The novel follows their inner struggles to overcome these barriers to happiness and wholeness. The author s own experiences, as recorded in her famous diaries, supplied the raw material for her fiction. It was her intuitive, experimental, and always original style that transformed one into the other. Nin herself memorably claimed that it was the fiction writer who edited the diary.
"Ladders to Fire" is the first book of Nin s continuous novel, "Cities of the Interior, " which also includes "Children of the Albatross, " "The Four-Chambered Heart, " "A Spy in the House of Love, " and "Seduction of the Minotaur." These loosely interlinked stories develop the characters and themes established in the first volume, leading slowly toward a resolution of inner turmoil and conflict.
This Swallow Press reissue of "Ladders to Fire" includes a new introduction by Nin scholar Benjamin Franklin V, as well as Gunther Stuhlmann s classic foreword to the 1995 edition."
