15.00

“Are you imagining, as you read me, that I'm portraying myself? Have patience: this is merely my model.”
― Colette, Break of Day

Written in the first person, and often in the present tense, Break of Day introduces the shifting memoir-as-fiction form that was to become her distinctive medium; what Angela Carter described as "a peculiar form of literary striptease".
