Today’s audiences may recognize this writer's name from her best-known work, the novella Gigi, which was made into a 1951 Broadway musical starring a pre-fame Audrey Hepburn — who was discovered by the author herself — and later adapted into an Oscar-winning 1958 film. But Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette Gauthier-Villars de Jouvanel Goudeket, better known simply as Colette, lives on as a revered French national treasure for the over 50 boundary-smashing works she published and for the bold, passionate way she lived her remarkable life. This elegant monograph, written entirely in French, contains the most exquisite portraits of the legendary figure—and really, of anyone—that we've ever seen. This a must for any sophisticated Francophile.
