Belles Saisons: A Colette Scrapbook

4.36  ·  Rating Details ·  11 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Although Colette was first and always a verbal artist, she was also a very original human being, an earthbound, androgynous, profoundly French female whose personality so deeply saturates everything she wrote that her life continues to interest readers as much as her art. This work helps to illuminate the mystery at the heart of this author.

Chock full of photographs, people and places, all ordered and framed by Colette's own words, I can turn ...more
