Product Description

From Library Journal

This marks the pioneer modernist's second title to be recently reprinted ( Geography and Plays , Classic Returns, LJ 1/94), indicating perhaps a Stein renaissance. Stein knew everybody who was anybody, and in this title, she spills the dope on them all in one of the more easily readable of her many works. For public and academic collections.

Format: Paperback
This is a fascinating account of Stein's travels in America following the success of "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas". Stein finds many things interesting about America, and through her descriptions, so does the reader. Her descriptions of the habits, manners, lifestyle, and thoughts of Americans are very simple but profoundly accurate. Being a Gertrude Stein work, Everybody's Autobiography also features amazing prose that is often challenging but always rewarding. Surprisingly, Everybody's Autobiography is very approachable once one adjusts to Stein's style. This was the first Stein work I read and I've already begun reading The Making of Americans. I just can't recommend this book [and Stein in general] enough.

Typical Gertrude Stein Nov. 14 2013

Gertrude Stein is a kick. I read her word as a teenager and enjoyed it. Now as a old lady, I enjoyed it even more.
