Largely autobiographical, La Vagabonde recalls the author's own years as a dance-hall performer in turn-of-the-century Paris. Colette takes the listener backstage and into the demimonde of Renee Nere, an aging dancer, mime, and failed writer. In a sultry, passionate, and intelligent voice, Renee narrates the story of her romance with an admirer named Maxime. Her struggle is that of a woman who must choose between freedom and love.
