A delightful introduction to one of the most influential figures of twentieth-century art and literature.
Here's an insider's tour of the lives of Gertrude Stein and her partner, Alice B. Toklas, amusingly addressed directly to the reader ("The next time you go to Paris ..."). It explores Gertrude and Alice's art collection, their famous writer and artist friends and even their dog, Basket. It also describes how Gertrude's book The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas was not about Alice, but more about Gertrude herself! A celebration of creativity and the creative process, this innovative and readable biography champions two women who dared to live unconventional lives.
Poems, paintings and Paris come to life in this enchanting book.
