Bea’s Books (10)

In a notebook, I find the following list:

“Read in 1972:

The Day of the Jackal, Forsythe: Cheap and sensation-seeking, but compels attention.

The Assistant, Malamud: Fine job. Life and death of a little Jewish storekeeper in a less prosperous section of the Bronx.

Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Carl Gustav Jung. A seminal book. Includes bibliography of Jung’s other writings. Jung refers, among others, to the writings of Jacob Boehme and Nicholas of Cusa.

The Diary of Anais Nin, Vol 1, 1931-1934. Most unusual and absorbing. Wish to read more volumes. Understand fourth is about to be published. READ IT. Home was at Louveciennes, near Paris.”
