Gay�&�Lesbian Review -
"Lucy Daniel considers the ways in which Stein consciously constructed her public self, and in turn how the public came to construct an Idea of Gertrude Stein. . . . Daniel synthesizes this material in a lively and readable fashion. She moves with skill from biography to analysis and never gets bogged down with overanalyzing Stein's motivations or her creative efforts. . . . the biography of Gertrude Stein has been a constantly evolving narrative that, like much of Stein's writing, maintains an intriguing and at time frustrating uncertainty. As Daniel's book shows, the story of how this narrative was created by Stein and her admirers has its own compelling history."
