I came to this book as a big fan of Hemingway who has not read much of Stein. As such, this book did not reveal much of Hem than I already knew, but I did learn a lot about Stein and her importance to Hemingway's career. The highlight of the book for me was the section that discussed Stein's favorite parts of speech, which sounds boring but was actually quite fascinating for me. The biggest disappointment was that the rest of the book did not hold as much discussion of the two author's evolving writing styles as I would have liked. Despite this, I still found this to be a very informative biography that gave me a better picture of how important these two authors were to each other.
