Colette: Mitsou and Music-Hall Sidelights
This product is currently sold out.
This publication is a double-feature of sorts, introducing two short works from the infamous French writer. Colette's direct voice and descriptive precision holds together the ambitious collage of writing techniques that her speakers resort to: using prose, letter-writing, scripted dialogue, and internal meditations to illustrate a kind of leaning into the limits of language. In this publication, the reader is introduced to Colette's style of slanted autobiography and sense of serious play, in thrall with the author as she flashes across her fiction–almost like she can't help but write herself down.
