Colette, prodded by her first husband, Willy, began her writing career with
Claudine at School, which catapulted the young author into instant,
sensational success. Among the most autobiographical of Colette's works,
these four novels are dominated by the child-woman Claudine, whose
strength, humor, and zest for living make her seem almost a symbol for the
life force. Janet Flanner described these books as amazing writing on the
almost girlish search for the absolute of happiness in physical love . . .
recorded by a literary brain always wide awake on the pillow.
