Seduction of the Minotaur
by Anais Nin
Seduction of the Minotaur is an example of Anaïs Nin’s most mature and cohesive fiction. The central character, Lillian, arrives in exotically primitive Mexico from New York, in part to forget her crumbling marriage and to find flow in her life after years of arrest. She befriends Dr. Hernandez, who is also trying to forget, and their friendship ends in both tragedy and enlightenment.
