Description
This sequel to Stein's Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas has been long misunderstood and neglected. An account of her experiences resulting from writing a bestseller, Everybody's Autobiography is funny and engaging, but also a seering meditation on the meaning of identity, success, and America. Stein at her most accessible and her most serious. Rejacketed and reprinted.

With her brother Leo she was an important patron of the arts, acquiring works by many contemporary artists, most famously Picasso, while her home became a popular meeting place for writers and painters from Matisse to Hemingway.
