The timing of this paperback edition containing two of Colette's short novels is just right, for interest in the French novelist's work is very high. These two linked pieces, critically acclaimed as being among her finest, are works of Colette's maturity, first published in France in 1934 and 1939. In Duo, Colette observes two characters whose marriage is foundering on the wife's infidelity. Acting out the final crisis, Alice and Michel have the stage to themselves so that nothing is allowed to distract from the marital dialogue. Le Toutounier continues Alice's story after Michel's death, and her move to Paris. There, she and her two sisters live in a shabby apartment. Fiercely independent, reticent, hard-working and needing men but showing little sign of loving them, they speak a private language and seek comfort in the indestructible sofa of their childhood. A Peter Owen Modern Classic
