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. "Everybody's Autobiography" is Stein at her most accessible and her most serious, and is among her most popular books.
