Review:

"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 to grandeur." --"The Times"
""Cheri "is her masterpiece."--Michael Straight, "The New Republic "
"Dramatic and moving . . . ["Cheri"] endears itself to the reader partly because of its subject, but more because of the manner of its telling."--"The New York Times"

"Cheri "is her masterpiece.--Michael Straight "The New Republic ""
