Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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

About the Author

Gertrude Stein was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, in 1874. As a child she lived in Vienna and Paris before returning to the United States to study at Radcliffe College and Johns Hopkins Medical School but left before taking her degree. In 1903 Stein moved to France where she lived with Alice B. Toklas. Her first novel, Three Lives, was published in 1909. Its prose style is highly unconventional and virtually dispenses with standard punctuation. Tender Buttons (1914) was even more experimental and sold extremely poorly. Other work by Stein include her theory of writing, Composition and Explanation (1926), The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas (1933), two volumes of memoirs, Everybody's Autobiography (1937) and Wars I Have Seen (1945). Stein died at Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1946.
