"After an astonishing, playful essay, the book opens into a revelatory combination of quotes, quips and 360 photos of Stein and her wildly brilliant circle."--Elle

Editor Renate Stendhal has selected 360 photographs - more than 100 of those seen here for the first time - of Gertrude Stein, her companion Alice B. Toklas, and the many familiar and famous faces who surrounded her. These photographs, artfully matched with text from Stein's work and from letters and memoirs of those who knew her, make up a distinctive new portrait of the Mother of Modernism in the expatriate circles of 1920s Paris.About the Author:
