Gigi. Julie de Carneilhan. Chance acquaintances by Colette( Book )
13 editions published between 1952 and 2001 in English and held by 936 libraries worldwide
"Gigi" is the story of a young girl being raised in a household more concerned with success and money than with the desires of the heart. But Gigi is uninterested in the dishonest society life she observes all around her and remains exasperatingly Gigi ... "Julie de Carneilhan," focuses on a contest of wills between Julie, an elegant woman of forty, and her ex-husband. "Chance Acquaintances," a novella, involves an invalid wife, her philandering husband, and a music-hall dancer whose odd meeting at a French spa affects and indelibly marks each one of their lives.-Back cover
Chéri, and the last of Chéri by Colette( Book )
21 editions published between 1951 and 2009 in English and held by 732 libraries worldwide
"Cheri, together with The Last of Cheri, is a classic story of a love affair between a very young man and a charming older woman. In describing the relationship between Fred Peloux, the beautiful gigolo known as Cheri, and the courtesan Lea de Lonval, Colette tenderly depicts the devotion that stems from desire and provides an honest account of the most human preoccupations of youth and middle age. With compassionate insight she paints a full-length double portrait, using an impressionistic style all her own. In Cheri, Colette achieved a peak in her earthy, sensuous, and utterly individual art."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published between 1923 and 1995 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
"In the novella Green Wheat, fifteen-year-old Vinca and her young friend Phil struggle to comprehend their bewildering urges. Set in a season of waiting, depicting their summer vacation together in a villa in Brittany, Colette's tale probes the uncomfortable border between the grief of leaving childhood behind and the frustration of not being old enough to move beyond it." "Published in 1923, Green Wheat was initially serialized in the French newspaper Le Matin, until protests against the frank depiction of adolescent sexuality caused the paper to cease the novella's publication. Now poet and translator Zack Rogow has resurrected it with respect and care."--Jacket

Set in Paris on the eve of World War II and sizzling with love, anger, and revenge, She Came to Stay explores the changes wrought in the soul of a woman and a city soon to fall. Although Françoise considers her relationship with Pierre an open one, she falls prey to jealousy when the gamine Xavière catches his attention. The moody young woman from the countryside pries her way between Françoise and Pierre, playing up to each one and deviously pulling them apart, until the only way out of the triangle is destruction. Based on the author's actual relationships with Jean-Paul Sartre and Bianca Bienenfeld
