ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the book "Colette: A Provincial in Paris," by Margaret Crosland. This book is recently published by British Book Center. This book is a biography of noted French novelist, Colette. This book of Crosland has been appraised as being a perfect example of biographical literature which also reflects the genius of a respectable novelist. A novelist writes primarily about people and their relationships. He or she may speak in either the first or the third person, subjectively or objectively, but he/she, must always be looking at specific human beings, not myths, archetypes, psychological patterns. These all conditions are claimed to be fulfilled by Crosland's said book.
