A little difficult to get through, but a classic.It's all about her sentences. Gertrude Stein defies literary convention and common policies of punctuation but writes with a loyalty to the way her mind deals with words and ideas. "Sentences not only words but sentences and always sentences have been Gertrude Stein's life long passion" (55). The book is written from the point of view of Alice Toklas, not Stein's.
