More About The Vagabond by Colette; Stanley Appelbaum
 
 
 
Overview
From the author of Gigicomes this tale of 33-year-old Renee Nere, recently divorced and seeking a new life as a vaudeville performer. Maxime, a wealthy playboy, tempts her from the path of independence with the comforts of love and marriage. From the physical and psychological distance of a provincial tour, Renee reflects upon the conflicting needs of security and freedom.
"The Vagabond, one of the first and best feminist novels ever written, is that rare thing: a great book which is also inspiring," declared Erica Jong. This vivid portrait of life in the Parisian music halls of the early twentieth century was drawn from the author's personal experiences. Colette's 1910 novel mirrors her own adventures as an itinerantdancer as well as herstruggles to maintain a balance betweensocial respectability and artistic freedom. This edition features an authoritative new translation of her story as well as an informative Introduction by Stanley Appelbaum."
