Guiler was, according to his own wishes, edited out of the diaries published during Nin's lifetime; his role in her life is therefore difficult to gauge. She actually began to act as a psychoanalyst herself, seeing patients in the room next to Rank's, and having sex with her patients on the psychoanalytic couch.
I was haunted by my patients.

I wanted to intercede. The published journals, which span several decades from onward, provide a deeply explorative insight into her personal life and relationships. Nin was acquainted, often quite intimately, with a number of prominent authors, artists, psychoanalysts , and other figures, and wrote of them often, especially Otto Rank.
Moreover, as a female author describing a primarily masculine constellation of celebrities, Nin's journals have acquired importance as a counterbalancing perspective. In the third volume of her unexpurgated journal, Incest , she wrote about her father candidly and graphically —15 , detailing his sexual abuse of her at age nine.
So far sixteen volumes of her journals have been published. All but the last five of her adult journals are in expurgated form. Nin is hailed by many critics as one of the finest writers of female erotica. She was one of the first women known to explore fully the realm of erotic writing, and certainly the first prominent woman in the modern West known to write erotica.
Before her, erotica acknowledged to be written by women was rare, with a few notable exceptions, such as the work of Kate Chopin. Nin often cited authors Djuna Barnes and D. According to Volume One of her diaries, — , published in , Nin first came across erotica when she returned to Paris with her husband, mother and two brothers in her late teens. They rented the apartment of an American man who was away for the summer, and Nin came across a number of French paperbacks: "One by one, I read these books, which were completely new to me.
I had never read erotic literature in America They overwhelmed me. I was innocent before I read them, but by the time I had read them all, there was nothing I did not know about sexual exploits I had my degree in erotic lore. Faced with a desperate need for money, Nin, Henry Miller and some of their friends began in the s to write erotic and pornographic narratives for an anonymous "collector" for a dollar a page, somewhat as a joke. In , a previously-undiscovered collection of erotica, Auletris , was published for the first time. Her passionate love affair and friendship with Miller strongly influenced her both sexually and as an author.
The first unexpurgated portion of Nin's journal to be published, Henry and June , makes it clear that Nin was stirred by June to the point of saying paraphrasing , "I have become June," though it is unclear whether she consummated her feelings for her sexually. Nin gave June money, jewelry, clothes, often leaving herself broke.
In addition to her journals and collections of erotica, Nin wrote several novels, which were frequently associated by critics with surrealism. Nin was also the author of several works of non-fiction: Her first publication, written during her years studying psychoanalysis, was D. Lawrence: An Unprofessional Study , an assessment of the works of D.

According to her diaries, Vol. Her husband Guiler is not mentioned anywhere in the published edition of the s parts of her diary Vol. The diaries edited by her second husband, after her death, tell that her union with Henry Miller was very passionate and physical, and that she believed that it was a pregnancy by him that she aborted in In , at the age of 44, she met former actor Rupert Pole in a Manhattan elevator on her way to a party.
On March 17, , while still married to Guiler, she married Pole at Quartzsite, Arizona , returning with him to live in California. Nin referred to her simultaneous marriages as her "bicoastal trapeze". She had this absolutely enormous purse and in the purse she had two sets of checkbooks. She had prescription bottles from California doctors and New York doctors with the two different names.

And she had a collection of file cards. And she said, "I tell so many lies I have to write them down and keep them in the lie box so I can keep them straight. In , Nin had her marriage with Pole annulled, due to the legal issues arising from both Guiler and Pole trying to claim her as a dependent on their federal tax returns. He responded by writing how meaningful his life had been because of her. After Guiler's death in , the unexpurgated versions of her journals were commissioned by Pole. Pole died in July
