. Claire met Anais Nin at the memorial service for publisher Alan Swallow in the basement of St. Mark's Church in New York City in 1966. A year later, after Claire, living in Washington, DC, had started his literary magazine, Voyages, Nin "spent the most time and effort ... acting like an upwardly eager associate editor... gushing with ideas and possibilities for future issues ... she became deeply involved with every issue, including an early issue featuring women writers, in 1968. She sent me manuscripts from her friends on both the east and west coasts, and some from abroad. She was my most indefatigable advisory editor throughout the life of the publication, which ended in the early 1970s." Claire later organized a memorial service for her in Washington DC

This is the fifth volume of the Cities of the Interior sequence, later published as Seduction of the Minotaur.
