In this book the odd, legendary, and passionate collaboration between Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas is eyed with detailed objectivity by London critic Souhami. This book presents the engaging backstage story to The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas--and, surprisingly, the first Stein biography in more than a decade. Photographs by Man Ray and Cecil Beaton stand out among illustrations that convey Stein and her world. review >>> it was facinating learning about these two women and thier unique lives.
