Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Self-published in 1914, this is one of the volumes that solidified Stein's reputation. Dividing the book into three sections--Objects, Food, and Rooms--Stein attempts to form images using repetition and disjointed words. As the average person will find that it makes no sense at all, Stein's exercise in automatic writing remains in the realm of the literati.
