Ms. Nin can be evaluated from many different positions. Erica Jong writes:

Nin's independence both as a wife and as a lover seems beguiling. At first she appears a beacon of liberation for women, but perhaps she was more enslaved to men than most of us....In a way she traduced her art for the sake of her deceptions.

Nin was fashionable in the hedonistic '60s and '70s. An icon of the women's liberation movement, she was as revered as her former lover, Henry Miller, was reviled. But informed opinions ebb and flow and more recently Miller has been rehabilitated and Nin has been reconsidered, in a less positive light. In a review of a Nin biography, Barbara Kraft writes:
[She] was unremittingly self-serving, devoid of even the most elemental moral or ethical considerations.

A recent biography of Nin claims that Nin lied about everything. Apparently her "unexpurgated" diaries are as indifferent to the truth as anything else she wrote or spoke about.

What then are we to make of a woman who provides the following recipe for happiness?

"mix well the sperm of four men"
