Continental European Novel Group

The Continental European Novel Group’s book for October discussion will be The Vagabond by Colette (Farrar Straus Giroux, $15.00). Thirty-three years-old and recently divorced, Renee Nere has begun a new life on her own, supporting herself as a music-hall artist. Maxime, a rich and idle bachelor, intrudes on her independent existence and offers his love and the comforts of marriage. A provincial tour puts distance between them and enables Renee, in a moving series of letters and meditations, to resolve alone the struggle between her need to be loved and her need to have a life and work of her own.
