Reviews

This dual biography focuses on the enduring relationship (1907-46) between Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Stein, who rose from obscurity to become an international celebrity, is certainly a fascinating character, noted for her inimitable writing, her collection of both modern art and modern artists (including a young Picasso), and her treatment of Toklas as her ``wife.'' The biography is balanced, providing accounts of Stein's and Toklas's lives before their legendary coupling as well as the latter's solitary years after the death of her companion. The author does not take an especially critical approach but instead offers an anecdotal, readable biography suitable for a wide audience. An excellent selection of photographs is dispersed throughout the text, giving one a sense of familiarity with these remarkable women. For informed readers.-- Janice Braun, Oakland, Cal.

'A brilliant and witty chronicle of one of the happiest marriages in modern literary history. Not only star-studded but light-filled.' - John Richardson, author of 'A Life of Picasso'
