Everybody's Autobiography is Stein at her most accessible and her most serious
In 1937, Gertrude Stein wrote a sequel to The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, but this darker and more complex work was long misunderstood and neglected.

Toklas, but it is also a meditation on the meaning of success and identity in America.
