Vagabond by Colette

Book Description

Thirty-three years-old and recently divorced, Renee Nere has begun a new life on her own, supporting herself as a music-hall artist. Maxime, a rich and idle bachelor, intrudes on her independent existence and offers his love and the comforts of marriage. A provincial tour puts distance between them and enables Renee, in a moving series of leters and meditations, to resolve alone the struggle between her need to be loved and her need to have a life and work of her own."

The situation of a classical scheme: a happy and harmonious life until the husband accidentally discovers that his wife had an affair with his partner and friend. Duo or Duel? With remarkable psychological acuity, Colette shows the contrast between the attitude of women -an adult character with no guilt- and the moral childish husband.

Collection of translated fiction, personal essays, articles, columns and talks.
