Description
Information
Gertrude Stein and Alice B Tokas were the talk of pre-war Paris. Photographed by Cecil Beaton and Man Ray, painted by Picasso and written about by Hemingway, they were at the heart of Parisian cultural and literary life. Alice, convinced that Gertrude was a genius, cooked for her, typed her manuscripts and fought to obtain the fame she was convinced Gertrude was due. Alice said Gertrude was the happiest person she had ever known, and was besotted with her for the many years they were together. they were indomitable, charismatic, and wildly eccentric, driving around in "Auntie", their Ford, with Basket, their cherished poodle.

Using letters, memoirs and the published writings of Gertrude and Alice, Diana Souhami has written a brilliant and witty chronicle of one of the happiest marriages in modern literary history.
