From deepest taboos to ardent longing that ignites the page and makes the heart thump harder, no one writes passion like Anaïs Nin. That’s why erotic author and publisher Lana Fox created Cathedral of Furs—five ardent linked stories inspired by Anaïs Nin’s diaries and creations.
Much like Nin herself, the protagonist Arielle refuses to let her heart be bound by rules that make no sense for her. Thus she embarks on a journey of honeyed liaisons, exotic revelations, and courageous encounters that society would have her shun in spite of their heart-driven passion.
“When asked for my favorite erotic books,” says Fox, “my answer is always Anaïs Nin’s unexpurgated diaries—the most erotically charged, emotionally intense writing I’ve ever read.”
Through Cathedral of Furs, Fox hopes to either share her own passion with those who already adore Nin, or encourage those new to Nin to read and be moved by her breathtaking work.
PRAISE FOR CATHEDRAL OF FURS
“Lana is an amazing writer, her own style is lush and makes me close my eyes as I pause and savor her prose…. Although the stories [in Cathedral of Furs] describe different relationships in Nin’s life, they flow in a breathtaking way that unites them. I took in passages that made me stop and wonder, was I reading Nin or Lana? And yet, Lana manages to make it her very own, with an intuitive contemporary angle. Lana is like a legit medium, filling us with the deepest secrets of desire.” —F. Leonora Solomon, Editor of Tie Me Up (Riverdale Ave Books)
