Description: 

Acclaimed writers Anais Nin (1903-1977) author of "The Diary of Anais Nin," Joan Didion, author of "Play It As It Lays," and Dory Previn, author of "Midnight Baby" are interviewed by Sally Davis, and give insightful interviews that shed light on their personalities. The three women are interviewed individually and discuss general themes of women's angst, loneliness and frustration as they relate to their work. Nin and Didion are interviewed on Reel 1 of this program; the second reel contains Previn's interview. Nin states: "...never give anybody the power to decide what is right or wrong in your creativity." Didion states: "...just my sheer interest in the techniques of writing kept me going and also I needed money." Previn states: "I found the world so intolerable that my psyche cracked."
