Colette’s France

colette book

Look what Rizzoli sent this week! A gorgeous book by Jane Gilmour on “Colette’s France,” which comes out October 1st, just in time for my birthday. The French writer Colette is known for her love affairs with women and young men (her 17 year old step son was one of her lovers!) as well as of course her amazing books and short stories that were feminine, racy, outrageous and provocative when she wrote them in the early 1900’s and still remain just as intriguing and fascinating now. The book is packed with photos, drawings and history, the perfect gift for your lit obsessed friends.
