- Full Description
From her marriage at the age of 20, until her divorce, the exotic life of Moulin Rouge dancer and performer Colette. Incredibly complex, powerfully determined, truly gifted, Colette challenged herself to reinvent her life and assert herself as a free woman. In her day, her behavior scandalized and vexed the establishment. But in the end, she helped to free women in their thinking. From her voluptuous performance in a see-through costume in "Egyptian Dream"--the story of an Egyptologist who falls in love with a mummy...to president of France's prestigious Académie Goncourt, among many other honors as one of France's preeminent authors. Nudity, sexual situations.
With superb artwork, delicately colored, this tells the story of the liberated writer who performed for a famous gay woman who put on elaborate balls at her French estate; scandalized audiences with her revealing customs on stage; embarked on love affairs, was banned from appearing on stage after a performance...and much more.
Preface by Nathalie Crom.
