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.
