Her prose is both biting and vulnerable, feminine and tough.

The book captures perfectly the strong, subversive humour that she is known for. 302. Near Fine/Fine.

HOBHOUSE, JANET
Everybody Who Was Anybody - a Biography of Gertrude Stein
London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson. 1975, First Edition. (ISBN: 0297769901). Hard Cover, 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. A large format volume of xii + 244 pages. 100 black and white illustrations, 8 colour plates. Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) soon became aware that she was destined to 'create the twentieth century'. Brought up in Europe and the new frontier state of California, Gertrude never lost the sense of being a pioneer. In 1903 she moved to Paris and two years later bought her first Matisse, the notorious Femme au Chapeau, the most ridiculed work of the scandalous 'Fauve' exhibition. In 1905 Gertrude also met and began to buy the work of Picasso. With his portrait of her, a work seminal in the development of Cubism, and with her own writing of Three Lives, both in 1906, Gertrude Stein began to take her place at the centre of a group of artists and writers whose works were among the most important of the century. By the outbreak of World War I Gertrude, with her brothers Leo and Michael, had amassed the most important collection of modern art in the world. After the war Gertrude became mentor to several of the best known American writers, among them Ernest Hemngway. By the time of her death, Gertrude Stein had become a legend - she had been painted, sculpted and photographed by the most famous artists of her time. Her apartments at rue de Fleurus, and later at rue Christine, were landmarks in Paris. The book tells the story of the public personality and the deeply serious writer behind. It recounts the development and significance of her complex relationship with her brother Leo, with Alice B. Toklas and with Picasso, as well as her artistic relationships with the Cubists and the writers of the Lost Generation and her profoundly symbolic relationship with America, with France, with 'inside and outside reality', with personality and the nature of genius.

When Scott arrived in Hollywood in 1927 with his wife Zelda, he saw the chance to weave into reality his life-dream of a happiness made of love, money, and drama. The glittering movie town at first fed the dreamby giving the Fitzgeralds a royal reception and the author a 'feeling of new worlds to conquer'. But when Hollywood turned golden, Fitzgerald's chance to conquer it got lost somewhere in the vast obscurity of the big studio machine. Scott made two more trips to Hollywood before he died there in 1940, at the age of 44. 300. Near Fine/Good.
