Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. The Other One by Colette is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. Translated into English from the French. Jane is Farou's secretary and mistress. Jane is also the admirer, confidante and constant companion of Farou's wife, Fanny. Colette exposes the subtle torments of living with infidelity, the capacity for suffering and the ruthlessness of women in love. Her sensitivity and honesty give this novel an emotional intensity which makes the startling twist at the end very poignant. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
