"Essential for all literature collections . . . Several of Stein's titles returned to print in 1995, but none more important than The Making of Americans."—Library Journal

In The Making of Americans, Gertrude Stein sets out to tell "a history of a family's progress," radically reworking the traditional family saga novel to encompass her vision of personality and psychological relationships. As the history progresses over three generations, Stein also meditates on her own writing, on the making of The Making of Americans, and on America.

4 out of 10

This huge book (925 pages) took a hugh effort to get through. Really not my kind of book. Almost no story, only focusing on the rythm and flow of the text. Lots and lots of repeats AND contradictions. But I'm happy with having finished it!
