The novel is a surrealistic look within the narrators subconscious mind as she attempts to escape from a dream in which she is trapped, or in Nins words, as she attempts to escape from the womans season in hell.

In the documentary Anais Observed, Nin says House of Incest was based on dreams shed had for more than a year. Nins usage of the word incest in this case is metaphorical, not literal. In this book the word incest describes a selfish love where one can appreciate in another only that which is similar to oneself. One is then only loving oneself, shunning all differences.

At first, such a self-love can seem ideal because it is without fear and without risk. But eventually it becomes a sterile nightmare.
