Gertrude Stein Remembered, a collection of memoirs by twenty people who knew her well, adds invaluable details to our view of Stein as a writer and woman. The recollections, some previously unpublished, cover the entire span of her career: from her time as an undergraduate at Radcliffe College to her extraordinary years as a writer in Paris from 1903 through 1946. Among the memoirists are novelists Sherwood Anderson and Thornton Wilder, bookseller Sylvia Beach, Russian painter Pavel Tchelitchew, journalists T. S. Matthews, Therese Bonney, and Eric Sevareid, and photographers Carl Van Vechten and Cecil Beaton. The composite portrait that emerges is of a complex, sometimes contradictory, always fascinating woman. Gertrude Stein Remembered is a kaleidoscopic view of Stein that perfectly suits this protean champion of modern literature and the avant-garde.
