A remarkable work in her oeuvre, Colette's "The Evening Star" was written when she was bedridden in her seventies and was the first time she had been forced into serious reflection. She said: "It may be that I shan't publish these pages. For this is the first time I am writing as I please." Luckily for her readers, this magical collection survived.
