about this book

"Largely to amuse herself, [Gertrude Stein] wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas...using as a sounding board her companion Miss Toklas, who had been with her for twenty-five years. The book is full of the most lucid and shapely anecdotes, told in a purer and more closely fitting prose...than even Gide or Hemingway have ever commanded."--Donald Sutherland

"The record of nearly thirty years of life in a fantastically changing Paris and else where--a life passed in the most stimulating and important society."--Louis Bromfield
