Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book will . . . radically change the way we read Gertrude Stein. It is an extremely scrupulous and brilliantly documented inquiry into the question that has faced every reader of Stein: How does one word lead to the next? I don’t know of any other critical book quite like this one, and I think that it possibly sets a model for genuine literary biography.”—Peter Quartermain, author of Disjunctive Poetics: From Gertrude Stein and Louis Zukofsky to Susan Howe

[Dydo’s] volume is something much more than just the most thorough reading Stein has ever had; it is a vision . . . of Stein herself. Dydo . . . has raised the bar for criticism and biography alike.—Ron Silliman, Talisman

“Perhaps the most comprehensive and surely the most interesting study of Stein’s compositional process yet attempted.”—Frances Richard, Brooklyn Rail
