9780871401601: Paris France

"America is my country and Paris is my home town." ―Gertrude Stein

The American writer Gertrude Stein (1874-1946), known for her innovative literary style, settled in Paris in 1903, where she supported the work of a number of artists and writers.

Paris France (1940) is a witty, anecdotal account of Stein's lifelong love affair with France. Written in the same fresh narrative style that made The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas a bestseller, it unites Stein's childhood memories of Paris with her observations about French culture―everything from cooking to the character of men, women, and animals. She also discusses the art of painting and relates amusing stories of life among some of her famous friends.

About the Author:

Gertrude Stein, born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, in 1874, is a renowned American writer, poet, and art collector. The author of more than a dozen books and countless works of criticism, Stein died in France in 1946.

Review:

“[A] testament of love...[and] affirmation of faith by one who knows the meaning of French civilization and loves France.”
- The Atlantic

“Less a love affair than an enduring marriage with a people and a country.”
- Guardian

“Full of charm, a very personal charm, and humor.”
- The Nation

“[Gertrude Stein’s] droll double vision is best appreciated in Paris France. First published in 1940 and freshly reissued with an introduction by Adam Gopnik, it’s a portrait of her beloved Paris pre-occupation, full of bons mots on fashion, food, art, and love―just the thing for a friend dreaming in French.”
- Megan O’Grady, Vogue.com
