The vagabond by Colette( Book )
410 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 12 languages and held by 2,822 libraries worldwide
"Thirty-three years old and recently divorced, Renée Néré has begun a new life on her own, supporting herself as a music-hall artist. Maxime, a rich and idle bachelor, intrudes on her independent existence and offers his love and the comforts of marriage. A provincial tour puts distance between them and enables Renée, in a moving series of letters and meditations, to resolve alone the struggle between her need to be loved and her need to have a life and work of her own"--Page 4 of cover
The ripening seed = (Le blé en herbe) by Colette( Book )
351 editions published between 1909 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 2,427 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

"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."--Jacket
