Weary of Willy’s sexual domination, Colette pursued an especially public lesbian love affair with a niece of Napoleon’s. At 40 she gave beginning to a daughter who bored her, at 47 she seduced her teenage stepson, and in her 70s she flirted with the Nazi occupiers of Paris, even if her cherished 3rd husband, a Jew, were arrested by means of the Gestapo.
