Gertrude Stein was tremendously influential in Paris and helped Hemingway and many other writers and painters in their early years. This odd book is about writing and related matters. She wrote it when she visited America and visited a number of colleges and other public places. As a student, I wrote my thesis on Stein, and spent many hours examining these texts for insight into her writing.

In Gertrude Stein’s America Gilbert Harrison provides Ms. Stein’s thoughts about many aspects of America. Ms. Stein was born in the U.S. and lived the first half of her life there before moving to Paris at the age of 29. She is best known for her meetings there with young literary figures such as Hemmingway and Fitzgerald and for the writing she did during those years. At the same time she never forgot her American roots as expressed by her statement, “America is my country and Paris is my city.” This slim (less than 100 pages) volume covers such topics as soldiers (her experience with American GIs in both world wars), landscape (the physical beauty of America), language (American English and British English use the same words but with different meanings), and success (American success is based on American failure.) Perhaps the best comment is her statement, “if the outside puts a value on you and all your inside gets to be outside, you may be a success but in a way you are a failure.”

Gertrude Stein lived her life according to her values and reading this book can help you understand both her and how to consider your own life and values.This book can be read in a few hours at most.

simple, straightforward language with alot of sentiments some of which seem a bit too much for my personal taste. What stands out in this short book is Gertrude Stein's genuine and pure curiosity in people/culture/history and her clarity in her ownership of her own perceptions...very refreshing.
