très fabuleuse!

I found The Collected Stories of Colette at a local bookstore. I'm so thrilled! This book "brings together in one volume for the first time in any language the comprehensive collection of short stories by the novelist known worldwide as Colette, and now acknowledged, with Proust, as the most original French narrative writer of the first half of (the 20th) century. Of the one hundred stories gathered here, thirty-one appear for the first time in English and another twenty-nine have been newly translated for this volume." Quite a treasure, I must say!
