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. An account of her experiences in the wake of having authored a bestseller, "Everybody's Autobiography" is as funny and engaging as "The Autobiography of Alice B. 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.

drawings, it does something to you, they are more offensive than drawings that
are just bad drawings now that's the way it is with your poetry it is more offensive
