I love these beautifully poetic stories from Colette, ranging from the Belle Epoch to her later life. I particularly like the theatre stories. Their deceptive simplicity leaves me breathless. Ah, if only my French was good enough to read this in the original. ( )

I'm only a third of the way through so won't review until I've finished. I am struck at how contemporary her voice is particularly the series of vignettes with a one-sided conversation. ( )
