By Colette, adapted for radio by Deborah Levy.

The story of the pre-war summer in which the famous, Bohemian and charming French writer, Colette, became an accidental resident in an Alpine Spa accompanied only by her beloved striped cat.

Amidst the mountains, the sulphur and the sick, she is befriended by an apparently conventional bourgeois couple and finds herself unwittingly and unwillingly embroiled in their lives.
