Children of the Albatros

Open All Close All

  • "From the Back Cover: Djuna is a woman of forty with an unexplained fortune. A former ballet dancer, her only friends are associates from that world, men who tend to attract her by their least mature qualities. So when she meets seventeen-year-old Paul, she is stirred to her depths. Paul is in flight from his father, and she, for reasons buried in her past, needs the opposition of a father figure to sharpen her own desire. Set against the cafe life of Montmartre, Children of the Albatross remains one of Nin's most poignant works, which delicately captures the nuances and half-dreamed sensations of adolescent love."
  • "Een danseres leeft in twee werelden: haar eigen verinnerlijkte wereld waarin jonge gevoelige mannen een belangrijke plaats innemen en de bestaande maatschappij, vertegenwoordigd door haar vriendinnen."
  • "Signed corrected typescript of Nin's novel. Title page contains a literary agent's stamp and publishing details in another hand beneath. On the verso Nin has noted "Characters in this novel have previously appeared in Ladders To Fire." Most of the corrections are of typing errors but there are a few textual changes."
  • "With the manuscript are a typed promotional statement, 1950, by literary agency Max Pfeffer quoting from a review by Suzanne de Villafranca of "The four chambered heart" and a formal photograph of Nin by Soichi Sunami."
  • "Djuna est l'héroïne principale de ce roman. Vouée d'une double personnalité, elle rêve dès l'enfance de celui qui viendra rompre sa solitude mais elle ne semble rencontrer que des rêveurs que leurs trop grandes ailes empêchent de marcher... Ce roman fait partie des cinq textes publiés entre 1946 et 1961 dans lesquels on retrouve trois amies inséparables : Lillian, Djuna et Sabina."
