Description

Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas were major cultural figures in 1920s Paris, photographed by Man Ray and Cecil Beaton, painted by Picasso, and written about by Hemingway. Alice was convinced from her first meeting with Gertrude that she was in the presence of genius, and dedicated herself to seeing Gertrude get the recognition that genius deserved. From letters, memoirs, and their published writings, the author has reconstructed the story of their lives for this biography.show more
