KIRKUS REVIEW

Once again Miss Nin creates dream images, illusions of unreality and insanity with poetic if incomprehensible phrases, forming a montage of exotic impressions -- all nebulous. This collects brief, atmospheric sketches, all without plot, plus a longer two-part work, Winter of Artifice, bringing in her inevitable Djuna and Lillian, with Djuna in the role of a child rejected by the father whom she adores. The second section is composed of stream of consciousness ""confessions"" to an analyst by a group of interrelated men and women, which offers at least a tenuous thread of plot. Same market as before.
