Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette arrived in Paris around 1900 as the provincial child bride of a notorious rake and brilliant literary impressario, Willy, who signed her novels, the "Claudines", as his own. When this tumultuous marriage ended, Colette went off with a high-born woman lover and embarked on a flamboyant stage career. This is her story.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

Throughout her highly public life Colette rewrote the rules for loving, working and aging. From the early novels (signed as her husband's) to the end of her marriage, lesbian affair with a Marquise, and raucous stage career, her life and work still challenge the norms of society. "...stays supremely in control of her wild, bold, brilliant and often obnoxious subject" Hermione Lee (biographer of Virginai Woolf).
