Overview

“Alice B. Toklas wrote hers and now everybody will write theirs.” In 1933 Gertrude Stein’s The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas skyrocketed to the top of the bestseller lists, and the author found herself a celebrity. Everybody’s Autobiography is the very Steinian account of her soul-satisfying next five years in France, England, and America, where she made a triumphant tour of the country. Here are Stein’s devastating analyses of some of the major figures of the day whom she met—among them Dashiell Hammett, Charlie Chaplin, Pablo Picasso, Marianne Moore, Mrs. Roosevelt, and Sherwood Anderson—and also of her own life and work.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This marks the pioneer modernist's second title to be recently reprinted ( Geography and Plays , Classic Returns, LJ 1/94), indicating perhaps a Stein renaissance. Stein knew everybody who was anybody, and in this title, she spills the dope on them all in one of the more easily readable of her many works. For public and academic collections.
