Gig and The Cat 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
AdonisGuilfoyle on LibraryThing 8 months ago
Two short stories, 'Gigi', the book of the musical, and 'The Cat', about a newly married man who wants to keep the two females in his life separate. Colette expertly condenses psychology and sensation into the briefest space, studying personalities and relationships through wonderful characters and dialogue; I love Aunt Alicia in 'Gigi' ("Go on eating while you answer my question, but don't talk with your mouth full"), and was glad to find that the play/film version maintains the spirit of the writing amidst the padding and songs. Alain, Camille - and Saha - are harder to warm to in 'The Cat', but it is easy enough to identify with their feelings: Camille's building jealousy, and Alain's fear of change. An excellent introduction to Colette's style and esprit!
