Sinopsis: A collection of Colette's best writings that have never before appeared in English.

The French writer Colette (1873-1954) is best known in the United States for such classic novels as Gigi and Cheri, which were made into popular movies, but she was a prolific author. This meticulously translated collection offers some of her best fiction, personal essays, articles, and talks, all appearing in English for the first time. The pieces showcase Colette's gifts as a writer: her deep wisdom about every age of human life, her skill as a storyteller, her wry humor, her persuasive powers, and her foresight as a social critic of issues such as gender roles.

The translators combed through journals and past editions of Colette's work to cull these gems, which cover an enormous array of topics—from French wines and perfumes to her friendships with Marcel Proust and Maurice Chevalier to uncanny insight into the curious habits of cats and dogs. Selections from an advice column that Colette wrote for the French women's magazine Marie Claire are also included, and her savvy suggestions for the lovelorn stand the test of time. Moving articles written during the two world wars, along with her memories of being an actor and playwright, reveal facets of her writing that are less often celebrated. The first new work by Colette to appear in English in half a century, it will delight devoted fans and new readers alike.

"It has been 50 years since anything new by Colette has appeared in English, but happily, that drought is over with the publication of Shipwrecked on a Traffic Island ...Translation is an art, and Colette has been well served by Rogow... and native Parisian Morel...Together, they have captured the extraordinary range and power of one of the 20th century's most important writers." — Bay Area Reporter

"Though the book is clearly intended for English speakers, even those who admire Colette in her inimitable French will derive pleasure from these once-inaccessible texts." —CHOICE

"The translators and editors, Zack Rogow and Renée Morel, have done a marvelous job combing through obscure journals and past editions of Colette's work to cover an array of topics that they've organized thematically ... beautifully translated ... Subtle yet explicit, specific yet universal, Colette conjured our emotional lives in ways impossible to ignore." —Wall Street Journal

"Zack Rogow and Renée Morel provide an exquisite translation that maintains Colette's delightfully effusive prose, and is certain to have readers envisioning the France she knew and loved ... This is an excellent opportunity for English readers to familiarize themselves with a more complete body of Colette's progressive works." —San Francisco Book Review

"This charming collection of previously untranslated stories, advice columns, and articles captures the passion and whimsy of influential French writer and personality Colette. The brevity of each piece (the longest is eleven pages) only serves to highlight the author's remarkable wit, insight, and economical yet beautiful prose. Each offering disarms and delights."World Literature Today

About the Author: Zack Rogow is Associate Faculty member in the Department of Creative Writing and Literary Arts at the University of Alaska Anchorage. He is the author, editor, or translator of many books and plays, including award-winning translations of George Sand, Colette, and André Breton.
