A lavishly illustrated biography of Colette, the French writer and key figure in French radical, artistic and intellectual life of the early 20th Century.
"A legendary French writer, radical, and provocateur, Colette epitomized Belle Epoque Paris. Her beauty and brilliance are captured strikingly in this artful, sensual biography." ForeWord Reviews
"More than a symbol, though, Colette, who famously had all kinds of affairs, was a writer of unflinching portraits of love, or rather, as Gilmour suggests in this illustrated biography, the impossibility thereof." Vogue.com
