Author(s): Gertrude Stein
The 1937 Sequel to THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ALICE B TOKLAS, is Stein's account of her triumphant return to the U.S, and a meditation of the meaning of identity, success and America. ' I used to be fond of saying that America was a land of failure. Most of the great men in America had a long life of early failure and a long life of later failure'. A darker work than TOKLAS, but written in a similarily engaging manner, this is Stein at her most accessible and her most serious; it should be amongst her most popular books.
