Reviews

  • Accessible and elusive; greedy and austere; courageous and timid; subversive and complacent; scorchingly honest and sublimely mendacious; an inspired consoler and an existential pessimist—these are the qualities of the artist and the woman. It is time to rediscover them.

    Judith Thurman, biographer of Colette
  • Her sensual prose style made her one of the great writers of twentieth-century France

    New York Times Book Review
  • She has been compared to a 20th-century female Montaigne, and it is true that her books offer a manual on how to live fearlessly and joyfully – greedily alive to every sensation and experience

    Guardian
  • A perfectionist in her every word

    Spectator
  • Her prose is rich, flawless, intricate, audacious and utterly beautiful

    Raymond Mortimer
