9780099422778: The Last Of Cheri (Vintage Classics)

At the end of Chéri the young Chéri left his aging mistress Léa on the eve of his marriage. Having served in the army during the war Chéri returns to Paris haunted by memories of his carefree youth and the bounty of his benevolent mistress. In the post-war 1920's he finds it impossible to settle down to a new life with his efficient and entrepreneurial wife and friends.

As his looks and his reputation begin to deteriorate Chéri's life is thrown into crisis as he attempts to recapture the contentment and companionship of his luxurious youth. As Chéri and Léa confront each other, and the changes a decade has wrought on their lives and their looks, Colette displays the incredible sensitivity and insight for which she is justly famous.

Review:

"Profound examination of love, aging, and sexuality" ( Washington Post)

"Everything that Colette touched became human... She was a complete sensualist; but she gave herself up to her senses with such delicacy of perception, with such exquisiteness of physical pain as well as physical ecstasy, that she ennobled sensualism almost to grandeur" ( The Times)

"I devoured Chérie at a gulp. What a wonderful subject you have taken up and with what intelligence, mastery and understanding of the least-admitted secrets of the flesh" (André Gide)

Book Description:

'A perpetual feast to the reader. Her prose is rich, flawless, intricate, audacious and utterly beautiful' Raymond Mortimer
