"Drawing on the originality, intelligence, and humor of Gertrude Stein, Noterdaeme has created a spirited portrait of two men who are at once insiders and outsiders at a particular moment in the New York art scene."
- Michelle Fost, Cleaver Magazine
"The more I read, the more I succumbed to this impressive work's many charms, chief among them being a peek behind the curtain at the life of a pair of full-time provocateurs and the understated portrait of a one-of-a-kind and enduring romance."
- John Bavoso, Lambda Literary
From the Back Cover
Using Gertrude Stein's THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ALICE B. TOKLAS
as a template, Filip Noterdaeme's THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DANIEL J.
ISENGART tells the true story of two eccentric expatriates who find love in
New York City and carve out a delirious, dadaesque life on the margins of
the contemporary art scene.
"A lovely romp with the absurd, beguilingly ironic about art and social
mores, and quietly sincere about love... It's hard to imagine anything more
charming" -- Andrew Solomon
"A mixed distillation of charm and spunk and,
best of all, gossip" -- Edmund White
"Great, effervescent fun... tone-rich, smooth,
sly and conceptual, like Alice B., in Gertrude's
hands" -- Wayne Koestenbaum
"This is one of the most satisfying sequels... playing with Gertrude Stein,
riffing on her style, her syntax, turning her love letter to Paris into a love
letter to New York" -- Wai Chee Dimock

Once upon a time not so far far away in New York lived two gay guys FilipandDaniel.
Gertrude of GertrudeandAlice wrote an autobiography about Alice of
GertrudeandAlice and it was real good.
Filip of FilipandDaniel wrote an autobiography of Daniel of FilipandDaniel and it was real good.
And here it is!
And here it is!
The best is yet to come...x
What shines through the entire book is Daniel J Isengart and Filip Noterdaeme living their lives on their own terms, where every action is an act of creation, and every day a "happening"
Who has ever heard of a museum where you "pay what you weigh" to get in, shop-lifting as performance art, or a gallery that has a stuffed coyote on its board?
A tale of lives and loves in the uptown downtown world of New York.
