Description

French author Colette has a special place in French literary history, her life and writing novels Cheri, Gigli and the Claudine series spanned the renowned artistic period of Belle Epoque Paris, the art scene in the South of France and war time Paris. Colette's France is the remarkable life story of this extraordinary woman, who was known simply as 'Colette'. This lavishly illustrated biography of the French writer, who was as famous for her novels, Cheri, Gigli and the Claudine series, as for her often controversial life, follows her journey through the landscapes of France where she lived and loved - from a childhood in Burgundy and coming of age in Belle Epoque Paris, to Provence and St Tropez. Jane Gilmour recounts the varied lives of a sensual, artistic, rebellious woman who lived life on her own terms, from prodigious writer and journalist, risque performer, lover and seducer, businesswoman, baroness, mother, and finally, grand old lady of letters.
