Reviews

"The paradoxes of great literature are those of human nature, and Colette is nothing if not human . . . Accessible and elusive; greedy and austere; courageous and timid; subversive and complacent; scorchingly honest and sublimely mendacious; an inspired consoler and an existential pessimist--these are the qualities of the artist and the woman. Its is time to rediscover them." --From the Introduction

"Delighted and quivering with life . . . Imbued with the most characteristic elements of the personality we have come to call simply Colette." --Robert Phelps, The New York Times
