Overview

Through the Paris salon of Gertrude Stein passed the luminous talents of an era: Picasso, Hemingway, Matisse, Cocteau, Fitzgerald, Apollinaire. With her devoted friend, Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein presided over a table heavy with good food and alive with sparkling conversation. In Charmed Circle, James R. Mellow has re-created this glorious world and the fascinating woman who dominated it. His compelling narrative is rich with insight into both Stein's celebrated career as a writer and her enduring relationship with Toklas. Spanning the years from 1903, when she first went to Paris, to her last days at the close of World War II, Charmed Circle is a penetrating and lively picture of this literary giant and her exciting times.
