This is the final volume of one of history’s most famous diaries, begun by Anaïs Nin at age eleven and continued until only weeks before her death sixty years later. The diary series has been hailed as a profound literary and cultural achievement, has been read by millions, has inspired generations of readers, and is considered to be among modern literature’s most unique documents, a relentless and inspiring search for self and survival in an unforgiving world. Nin has shown readers how to live deeply for the past half century, and in A Joyous Transformation she shows us how to face mortality with courage and grace.
