Description

Gigi Translated by Boger Senhouse, The Cat Translated by Antonia White.

Gigi's days are filled with cigars, lobster, lace and superstitions: the education of a future courtesan.

Bored and unconvinced by what she's taught, Gigi surprises all with her approach to love.

In this classic turn-of-the-century novella, Colette unveils Gigi's journey into womanhood in rich and supple prose.

This edition includes The Cat translated by Antonia White.

I wanted Madeleine to read <i>Gigi</i>, But it had been years since I read it so I decided to re-read it, something I rarely do. I first read the novella when I was about sixteen, Gigi's age. Before reading it I read rather indiscriminately, after <i>Gigi</i>...well I was ruined for schlock. I love Colette's pure prose, her ability to capture a personality with a few pen strokes. With this re-reading I found it is just as charming, maybe even more so, than I remember it.
