Description - The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein

"The Autogiography of Alice B. Toklas" is in fact Gertrude Stein's own autobiography, seen through the eyes of her friend, Alice B Toklas. With occasional glimpses into her early life, it describes her years in Paris until 1932. At 27 Rue de Fleurus, Gertrude Stein established a formidable literary and artistic salon, and this book provides a record of her friendships with some of the world's foremost artists and writers - Picasso, Apollinaire, Matisse and Braque - her impressions of Paris during the World War I and then the post-war American "invasion".

Author Biography - Gertrude Stein

Gertrude Stein was an American writer who spent most of her life in France, and who became a catalyst in the development of modern art and literature. Her life was marked by two primary relationships, the first with her brother Leo Stein, from 1874-1914, and the second with Alice B. Toklas, from 1907 until Stein's death in 1946. Stein shared her salon at 27 rue de Fleurus, Paris, first with Leo and then with Alice. Throughout her lifetime, Stein cultivated significant tertiary relationships with well-known members of the avant garde artistic and literary world of her time.
