ChÃ©ri is one of the most honest, sensual, and poignant breakup stories ever written. First published in 1920, it was instantly greeted by Marcel Proust and AndrÃ© Gide as a masterpiece and today remains Coletteâs most admired work.
LÃ©a de Lonval is an aging courtesan, a once famous beauty facing the end of her sexual career. She is also facing the end of her most intense love affair, with Fred Pelouxâknown as ChÃ©riâa playboy half her age. But neither lover under-stands how deeply they are attached, or how much life they will give up by parting ways. A classic portrait of French manners before World War I, ChÃ©ri also captures a lasting truth about the connections between sex, love, and feelings of mortality. This new edition includes The Last of ChÃ©ri, an epilogue in which Colette depicts Paris reeling in the aftermath of war, at the start of the Roaring Twenties.
