Read in March, 2009, read count: 1

I give Little Birds four stars in comparison to Delta of Venus' two, though as a stand alone, it would probably only get 2 or 3. There are almost no disgusting and despicable sex scenes in Little Birds, and for this, I am grateful. (As it turns out, I'm a bit prudish after all...)

Little Birds is set in various places around the world, but quite often set in New York and New Orleans. It feels more modern than Delta of Venus. It feels more aware, more present. And this, my second dip into a collection of Anais Nin's short stories, I finally understand why she is a noteworthy FEMALE writer. She is finally writing about women. Silly, stupid women. And most of it's pretty sexy.

Maiden Aunt And to think you almost had my vote! Up until the last sentence, I dare say!

Amanda Well, shit. There goes my life long dream of having the most review votes on all of GoodReads for Little Birds.

I'll have to go review Harry Potter or something.
