   schema:reviewBody ""'You are, of course, never yourself', wrote Gertrude Stein in one of her famously witty autobiographies. In this book Lucy Daniel reveals the many selves that composed Stein's inspiring and captivating life." "Though American, Stein has been celebrated as the embodiment of Left Bank bohemia. She was a patron of modern art and writing, as a gay icon and the hostess of perhaps the most famous salon of modern times, with Picasso, Matisse, Hemingway and Pound among her friends and associates. Yet despite an immense and varied body of work and a writing life that spanned 50 years, she remains one of the most recognizable and yet least-known of the twentieth century's major literary figures." "Daniel shows how the legend of 'Gertrude Stein' was created, both by Stein herself and her admirers, exploring her works, her many notable portraits and her own entertaining anecdotes. From early efforts in automatic writing to late experiments in the art of autobiography, Daniel examines Stein's continued stylistic experimentation, as well as her involvement with turn-of-the-century feminism and psychology, her 40-year relationship with Alice B. Toklas, the cultural impact of her salon in the Parisian expat scene, and the controversy surrounding her life in occupied France during the Second World War." "A fresh and readable presentation of this major American writer, Gertrude Stein gives much-needed attention to the continuing significance and influence of Stein's work."--Jacket." ;
