When critics challenged her, she answered simply, 'Why don't you read the way I write?' Another time she said, 'I have been the creative literary mind of the century.' The amazing thing is, she was right. Gertrude Stein was perhaps the most powerful liberating force in twentieth-century literature. In her hands words took on fresh vitality; the novel, an exciting new dimension. Her books - 'Three Lives', 'Tender Buttons', 'The Making of Americans' - influenced a whole generation of writers, most famous among them Ernest Hemingway. An inspired collector, she was both friend and patron of Picasso, Matisse, Bracque. Together she and the composer Virgil Thomson made the world-famous opera 'Four Saints in Three Acts'. W.G. Rogers, a friend of many years, has written a wise and affectionate account of this extraordinary American woman, capturing the flavor of the literary and artistic world of France in the early years of the century, and - more importantly - the excitement of her own lively and inquiring mind." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor fading at top edge of spine. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has very light edge wear/wrinkling, slight fading to spine color, slight browning to inside of spine, very light soiling and a few faint line marks on rear panel.
