Deleuze and Sex

Anna Powell

Edinburgh University Press

In Chapter 2, ‘Heterotica: The 1000 Tiny Sexes of Anaïs Nin’, Anna Powell adds to the male literary assemblage of Henry Miller, Antonin Artaud and D. H. Lawrence, all of whom are crucial to Deleuze, Anaïs Nin's ‘feminist smut’. Nin's work is of great relevance to Deleuze and Guattari's project but as in the case of so many other female writers, her evocative writing has remained a potential lost to the Deleuzian project. Redeeming this missed opportunity, Powell inscribes Nin's ‘heterotica’ on the surface of Deleuzian sexuality and thereby reveals the importance of Nin's ‘transformative erotic vitalism’.
