Exact Change, 1993 - 328 pagina's
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.

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