Anais Nin (1902-1977) introduces this program as a summary of many discussions she's had while traveling and speaking all over the United States on writing and the "novel of the future." She says her novel of the future will employ such diverse techniques as the interior monologue, stream of consciousness, symbolism, abstraction, and metaphor, to interpret character and experience, and which stems from writers such as Marcel Proust, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Virginia Woolf, and D. H. Lawrence. The program is interspersed with readings from her work "Realism and Reality". Recording likely a rebroadcast of a July 13, 1960 program, though there is no indication on the tape box or record.
