It was said that Gertrude Stein was a painter, but she painted with words. Tender Buttons is a prime example of her ability to create intricate prose as if painting a masterpiece not with a brush but with the English language. Tender Buttons is recommended for those who have already fallen in love with the art form that is the mind of Gertrude Stein, and for those who are just now discovering her amazing talent.

About the Author:

Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was an American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. Born in the Allegheny West neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and raised in Oakland, California, Stein moved to Paris in 1903, and made France her home for the remainder of her life. She hosted a Paris salon, where the leading figures of modernism in literature and art, such as Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis, Ezra Pound, and Henri Matisse would meet.

From Library Journal:

Self-published in 1914, this is one of the volumes that solidified Stein's reputation. Dividing the book into three sectionsAObjects, Food, and RoomsAStein 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.
