Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. My Mother's House and Sido by Colette is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. In My Mother's House and Sido, Colette plays fictional variations on the themes of childhood, family, and, above all, her mother. Vividly alive, fond of cities, music, theater, and books, Sido devoted herself to her village, Saint-Saveur; to her garden, with its inhabitants and its animals; and, especially, to her children, particularly her youngest, whom she called Minet-Chéri. Unlike Gigi and Chéri, which focus largely on sexual love and its repercussions, My Mother's House and Sido center on the compelling figure of a powerful, nurturing woman in late-nineteenth-century rural France, conveying the impact she had on her community and on her daughter—who grew up to be a great writer. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
