Together these essays and others reveal Stein's ideas and techniques and provide a read that is unique and exhilarating."--BOOK JACKET
The letters of Gertrude Stein and Carl Van Vechten, 1913-1946 by Gertrude Stein( )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From publisher: This monumental collection of correspondence between Gertrude Stein and critic, novelist, and photographer Carl Van Vechten provides crucial insight into Stein's life, art, and artistic milieu as well as Van Vechten's support of major cultural projects, such as the Harlem Renaissance. From their first meeting in 1913, Stein and Van Vechten formed a unique and powerful relationship, and Van Vechten worked vigorously to publish and promote Stein's work. Existing biographies of Stein--including her own autobiographical writings--omit a great deal about her experiences and thought. They lack the ordinary detail of what Stein called "daily everyday living": the immediate concerns, objects, people, and places that were the grist for her writing. These letters not only vividly represent those details but also showcase Stein and Van Vechten's private selves as writers. Edward Burns's extensive annotations include detailed cross-referencing of source materials

Fernhurst, Q.E.D., and other early writings by Gertrude Stein( Book )

36 editions published between 1971 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gertrude Stein began the creative work that was to earn her the reputation as one of the most original writers of this century with the three pieces in this volume. Fernhurst, a fictional episode based on a Bryn Mawr scandal of the early 1900s, explores the labyrinth of love between man and woman and between woman and woman; Q.E.D. fictionalizes an early Stein romance (doomed finally by a rival); and the third selection is an early draft of The Making of Americans, which records Stein's struggle toward maturity as woman and artist. Essential works of a significant twentieth-century literary voice." --

Lucy Church, amiably by Gertrude Stein( Book )

33 editions published between 1930 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It seemed lyrical to Miss Stein to name her character Lucy Church for the church at Lucey, [France]. This is the source of many of her names and images--they are puns from French to English. ... The result can be read simply as an account of being in the countryside, or more complexly, as an investigation into the interlocking nature of things, and into the ways that language can be used for description."--Cover
