The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas


Автор: Gertrude Stein


Короткое описание книги

A fascinating insight into the vibrant culture of Modernism, and the rich artistic world of Paris's Left Bank, Gertrude Stein's The Autobiography of Alice B.

Toklas includes an introduction by Thomas Fensch in Penguin Modern Classics.

For Gertrude Stein and her wife Alice B.

Toklas, life in Paris was based upon the rue de Fleurus and the Saturday evenings and 'it was like a kaleidoscope slowly turning'.

Picasso was there with 'his high whinnying Spanish giggle', as were Cezanne and Matisse, Hemingway and Fitzgerald.

As Toklas put it - 'The geniuses came and talked to Gertrude Stein and the wives sat with me'.

A light-hearted entertainment, this is in fact Gertrude Stein's own autobiography and a roll-call of all the extraordinary painters and writers she met between 1903 and 1932.

Audacious, sardonic and characteristically self-confident, this is a definitive account by American in Paris.

Gertrude Stein (1874-1946), a writer of experimental prose, is one of the original American.
