"Here upper-class elites discuss art in well-appointed drawing rooms; rowdy and lascivious drunks spend long nights in jazz clubs and speakeasies; and politically conscious young intellectuals drink coffee and debate "the race problem" in walkup apartments. At the center of the story, two young people - a quiet, serious librarian and a volatile aspiring writer - struggle to love each other as their dreams are slowly suffocated by racism."--Jacket

Upon his death, Peter Whiffle requests that Carl write the story of his life even though Peter himself considered writing as "constant definition, although it is apparent as anything can be that life, nature, art, whatever one writes about, are fluid and mutable things." Ultimately, Carl settles on writing "a sort of losoe biographical form, a free fantasia in the manner of a Liszt Rhapsody."--Preface, p.3, 8

The letters of Gertrude Stein and Carl Van Vechten, 1913-1946 by Gertrude Stein( Book )
16 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 553 libraries worldwide
Both in her lifetime and since, Gertrude Stein's persona received far more attention than her writings. The result was a distorted view of both her person and her work. This monumental two-volume set of her correspondence with Carl Van Vechten, the critic novelist, and photographer, offers new insight into Stein's life, her art, and the intellectual and artistic milieu of Paris. These letters also follow Van Vechten's various careers: particularly his championship of the Harlem Renaissance. The existing biographies of Stein, and even her own autobiographical writings, omit a great deal. W
