182pages. poche. broché. Petite fille adorée de deux demi-mondaines, Gigi s'applique à manger délicatement du homard à l'américaine, à distinguer une topaze d'un diamant jonquille et surtout à ne pas fréquenter les gens ordinaires. On lui apprend son futur métier de grande cocotte. Mais Gigi et Gaston Lachaille, le riche héritier des sucres du même nom, en décident autrement. Gigi, un des rares romans d'amour heureux de Colette, donne son titre à cet ouvrage qui comporte trois autres nouvelles: L'Enfant malade , La Dame du photographe , Flore et Pomone , dont la richesse du style, d'un art inimitable, enchante.

About the Author:

'Me a feminist?' She scoffed in 1910. 'I'll tell you what the suffragettes deserve: the whip and the harem'. COLETTE is an intriguing and flamboyant figure. Born in Burgundy in 1873 she moved to Paris at the age of twenty with her husband the writer and critic Henry Gauthiers-Viller (Willy). Forcing Colette to write, Willy published her novels in his name and the Claudine series became an instant success. She escaped her exploitative first husband to live by her pen and work in music-halls as a dancer. Colette had a lesbian love affair with a niece of Napoleon's, she married three times, had a baby at 40 and at 47, preferring 'passion to goodness', she seduced her teenage stepson. In the meantime she wrote stunning novels that were admired by Proust and Gide -- Gigi, Sido, Cheri, and Break of Day. Colette lived to be over 80. She was the first woman President of the Academie.
