Colette’s “Break of Day” and “Letters from Colette”


During a horrendous illness, I turned to Colette, the lyrical French writer best-known for the autobiographical Claudine books. She ghostwrote the series at the bidding of her rakish first husband, Willy, who ran what Colette called a “factory” of  ghostwriters. Two of her other books kept me alive while I was sick, her meditative novel Break of Day, written in her fifties, and Letters from Colette, edited by Robert Phelps.
