Brief biography of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954), French author known for her writing and performing and scandalous lifestyle. Colette’s love life was passionate and volatile, but nothing stopped her from a voluminous output of writing. She was also a practicing journalist in the midst of her writing career. Gigi, perhaps her best-known works (which inspired a popular film), is a story of a French girl training to be a courtesan, but who falls in love with a wealthy gentleman. Its stage adaptation, created by her American friend Anita Loos, was greeted with critical acclaim, starring then-unknown Audrey Hepburn playing the main character.

A charming classic . Very intersting theme and well carried out by the author.
This is the actual story "Gigi" not the film version and it is charming. It is a novella (a short story/book) and takes about 2 - 3 hours to read. Just about everyone knows the story so I won't go there. Collette's characters are sympathetic, especially Gigi, and well written and her imagery is really in top form. This was her only "comedy". It's a small book that literally fits in your pants pocket so you can read it on the train going to work. It's a good investment at a good price.
I bought this book for a friend who wanted to sharpen her French skills by reading French text. She liked the book.
Arrived in good condition.
Fantastic understanding human nature.
The reader pronounced things clearly and very well read by Victoria or who ever the company or lady is I don't know who it may be
Gigi was the first novel I read in French, and at the time that I read it, probably it was the raciest book I ever read, I was a mere lad of I don't know, eleven or so. I couldn't figure out exactly who was who. I tried reading GONE WITH THE WIND in French but that was too long. Gigi was perfect. She was, after all, a young girl, though from a different world than mine. She had several aunts who wanted to train her into the high level world of the Courtesan. A good parallel would be the recent novel MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA by Arthur Golden.

What distinguishes Colette from Golden is that the French writer built a legend around herself in terms of the beauty and poetry of her language. Not only did she possess a stern and acute mind from which no nuance of regret or longing escaped her gaze, but she wielded a pen like an angel. She was incapable of writing a phony sentence, and like the American modernist poet William Carlos Williams she found beauty in the ordinary and the commonplace. A swatch of wildflowers growing in the graveyard where Gigi's mother lies becomes the palette of an artist with the dappled colors suggesting possibility. Gigi's hopes, dreams and fantasies lie mingled, like sooty water, with the harsh realities of her existence. Basically she must find a rich man to cling to, or lose all her status.

For a young boy reading her story, and trying to puzzle through the evocative French, I found myself stumbling at times, but at the end I became convinced that I knew this girl, and I took pleasure in her small triumphs and her enemies became mine.

Today many of Colette's works have been translated but she is still very much caviare to the general. Another couple of books I can recommend to you are CHERI and its sequel, THE LAST OF CHERI. (Cheri's a guy despite his name which to me seemed feminine before I got the drift of things.)
The idea of a teenager educated to become a classy prostitute, otherwise known as a courtesan, seems far-fetched to us. But in the time of Colette, women had very little rights and were not supposed to work, because it was degrading (work moved you down the social ladder). I bet Colette knew quite a number of examples of little Gigi.
What makes the story delightful is that Gigi does not want at all the kind of life she is meant to have.
In the same legal and economic circumstances lives the heroin of Quality street: a comedy a play wirtten by Barrie, the author of Peter Pan.

And of course you can still view the movie Gigi (Two-Disc Special Edition) Actress Leslie Caron was perfect for the role.
I recoomend the book, it is an easy read and gives an interesting slant on the end of Victorian times.
