Product description

In The Making of Americans, Gertrude Stein sets out to tell "a history of a family's progress," radically reworking the traditional family saga novel to encompass her vision of personality and psychological relationships. As the history progresses over three generations, Stein also meditates on her own writing, on the making of The Making of Americans, and on America.

Review quote

"Essential for all literature collections... Several of Stein's titles returned to print in 1995, but none more important than The Making of Americans."-- Library Journal

Editorial reviews

This is the first American edition of some material hitherto published only in France. Galleys received too late to include in this issue, so the report will follow on February 1st. Publication date tentatively set for February 8. (Kirkus Reviews)
