Chronicling Colette's scandalous life--male and female lovers, a stint in vaudeville, an affair with her stepson, a final happy marriage to a younger man--Thurman makes it clear that the writer's adored yet dominating mother and exploitative first husband made it difficult for her to conceive of amorous equality.

Colette is one of those authors whose life is as fascinating as her writing, and this book ably describes the former, also containing many wonderful photos.
