Colette schreibt hier die wahre Geschichte einer beispiellosen Ausbeutung: dreizehn Jahre lang veröffentlichte Willy, ihr erster Ehemann, unter seinem Namen und mit «würzenden» Zutaten jene Romane, die ihren Weltruhm begründeten. In ihr Arbeitszimmer eingesperrt, mit einem Taschengeld abgespeist, verfaßte sie Bücher, mit denen er sich zum erfolgreichsten Literaten seiner Zeit aufschwang. Ihre frühen Pariser Jahre im Schatten von Willy schildert Colette hier so, wie die Erinnerungen in ihr aufsprudeln – nicht in zeitlicher Ordnung, sondern in enthüllenden Szenen voller farbiger Gestalten. Doch im Mittelpunkt steht die Abrechnung mit ihm – dem Anreger und schließlich besiegten Ausbeuter.

Junge Frauen wie Violet kamen häufig in Dr. Charlotte Keatings Praxis. Und Charlottes Reaktion war jedesmal die gleiche: ein mitfühlend vorgetragenes, aber entschiedenes Nein. Vielleicht liegt es an Violets kompromißloser Verzweiflung, daß Charlotte die junge Frau nicht vergessen kann und abends versucht, sie zu sprechen. Doch Violet ist verschwunden. Bis sie wieder auftaucht – im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ...

Writings from the old-school Republican and New York Times–bestselling author of How the Hell Did This Happen?: “Hilarious” (Christopher Buckley, author of Thank You for Smoking). In this collection of pieces, the outrageous political satirist renowned for such classics as Parliament of Whores takes on a wide range of cultural and political issues, and explains the platform of the Republican Party Reptile: “I think our agenda is clear. We are opposed to: government spending, Kennedy kids, seat-belt laws, busing our children anywhere other than Yale, trailer courts near our vacation homes, all tiny Third World countries that don’t have banking secrecy laws, aerobics, the UN, taxation without tax loopholes, and jewelry on men. We are in favor of: guns, drugs, fast cars, free love (if our wives don’t find out), a sound dollar, and a strong military with spiffy uniforms. There are thousands of people in America who feel this way, especially after three or four drinks. If all of us would unite and work together, we could give this country . . . well, a real bad hangover.” “To say that P. J. O’Rourke is funny is like saying the Rocky Mountains are scenic—accurate but insufficient. At his best he’s downright exhilarating . . . Republican Party Reptile is as rambunctiously entertaining as a greased pig catching contest. If you can find a funnier writer than P. J. O’Rourke, buy him a brandy, but don’t lend him the keys to your pickup.” —Chicago Tribune
