9780099422525: Claudine In Paris (Vintage Classics)

At the age of seventeen Claudine is in despair having left her beloved Montigny for a new life in Paris. Comforted by her devoted maid Melie, her slug-obsessed Papa, and the trustworthy cat Fanchette, Claudine's instinctive curiosity gradually leads to an awakened interest in the city.

Ruthless, impetuous and chastely sensual Claudine records her witty observations and adventures amongst the intriguing characters that surround her, evoking the glamour and excitement of Parisian life.

Written with striking realism Claudine in Paris is an inspiring portrait of a precocious young girl on the brink of transformation into a woman for her, and our, time.

Review:

"Her sensual prose style made her one of the great writers of twentieth-century France" ( New York Times Book Review)

"A perfectionist in her every word" ( Spectator)

"Her prose is rich, flawless, intricate, audacious and utterly beautiful" (Raymond Mortimer)

"Everything that Colette touched became human" ( The Times)

Book Description:

'Colette seems to me to be, along with Yeats, the outstanding example in our century of the sort of writer who leaves us not only his stories and poems, but a voluntarily created personality which may be said to contain these works of art.' New York Times
