Description: For all her flamboyance and celebrity as France's bestselling novelist -- a virtual Madonna of the belle epoque -- Colette is a woman who fiercely resists being known. "Secrets of the Flesh" is a captivating revelation of its mythic subject.

Following an idyllic nineteenth-century childhood, Colette created the figure of the liberated woman. She had numerous affairs with women, married three times, gave birth to a child at age forty, and launched a second career late in life in the beauty business. All the while she wrote. She produced some of the century's greatest fiction, including the masterpieces Cheri and Gigi, and some of its most incisive journalism.

Drawing upon a wealth of heretofore untapped sources, including many unpublished letters, Judith Thurman, in Secrets of the Flesh, gives us Colette's life and work with unprecedented psychological insight, human drama, and historical perspective.
