“You’re Food and Drink to Me.” A Letter From Henry Miller to Anais Nin

In 1932, months after first meeting in Paris and despite both being married, celebrated Cuban diarist Anaïs Nin and Henry Miller—the hugely influential novelist responsible for writing the sexually explicit (for the times) novel Tropic of Cancer (1934), which Nin helped to finance—began a fiery love affair. The liaison would last for many years, a situation further intensified by the fact that Nin also had an openly discussed affair, albeit brief, with Miller’s then-wife, June, as their own romance grew. Such explosive conditions resulted in countless passionate love letters from both parties. This particular missive was written prior to a heated few days at Nin’s home in France.
