The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas

by Stein, Gertrude - £9.99  Penguin Classics (1933)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141185361 | ISBN 10: 0141185368

For Gertrude Stein and her companion Alice B. Toklas, life in Paris was based upon the rue do 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 THE American in Paris.
