Her companions were all the great French writers, artists, actors and intellectuals and her life is told against a backdrop and atmosphere of great creativity and style, liberation and rebellion. Colette both wrote about love and lived love to the fullest in the most independent, and often outrageous sense - numerous lovers, several marriages, a lesbian affair, and an affair with her seventeen-year-old stepson. Colette's France reveals too her deep and personal love of France and the natural world. This book is an illustrated biography of French writer, Colette, told through the locations in France where she lived, worked and loved. Her lively life story moves along through her many different relationships and homes - from a childhood in Burgundy, to Paris of the Belle Epoque, Britanny to Provence and more. Beautiful photographs and illustrations bring her story alive and evoke the style and fashion of the times.
