Two volumes of Colette's most beloved works, with a new Introduction by Judith Thurman.Ch ri, together with The Last of Ch ri, is a classic story of a love affair between a very young man and a charming older woman. The amour between Fred Peloux, the beautiful gigolo known as Ch ri, and the courtesan L a de Lonval tenderly depicts the devotion that stems from desire, and is an honest account of the most human preoccupations of youth and middle age. With compassionate insight Colette paints a full-length double portrait using an impressionistic style all her own.
