Format: Kindle Edition
Many might think me crazy for giving this book 5 stars, but I feel that if people take the time to read any one of the sections all the way through many people might find it a mind-altering experience. Gertrude stein is a master of sound and rhythm and her incantatory repetitiveness I find mind-altering. She requires patience. Don't try to figure her out, just listen - get into the sonorous sensuality of it all, enjoy it like you would an abstract painting. Who knows you might develop a new taste - and if you decide you don't like it, well, nothing's for everyone

Format: Paperback
Buy this book, because it includes the amazing "A Long Gay Book." This work is much, much shorter than "The Making of Americans." Within it, Stein begins in the style which ends "The Making of Americans" (rhythmic, repetitive sentences which analyze the psychology of the different characters), and, somehow, during the book she transforms her writing, so that by the end of the book it is in the style of "Tender Buttons" (completely abstract writing, stunningly beautiful combinations of words with no clear referents.) To watch one kind of book change, by gradual degrees, into a completely different kind of book is truly astonishing.
