The unforgettable stories of three women, told with poignancy and compassion by one of the most important writers of our century.
"Three Lives, more radically than any other work of the time in English, brought the language back to life. Not the life of the peasantry or the emotions or the proletariat but life as it was lived by everybody living in the century, the average or normal life as the naturalists had seen it. Gertrude Stein in this work tried to coordinate the composition of the language with the process of consciousness, which...was to her a close reflex of the total living personality..."--Donald Sutherland, in Gertrude Stein: A Biography of Her Work
