The Making of Americans: Being a History of a Family's Progress
Gertrude SteinISBN: 1564780880; 9781564780881;
From the "I can't believe this is out of print" file comes Stein's monster of a novel, which was initially serialized by Hemingway and Ford Madox Ford in the Transatlantic Review. Although Stein does not follow convention, the plot portrays three generations of an American family. An abridged edition was released in 1934, but this is a facsimile of the original text published in Paris in 1925 by Robert McAlmon's Contact Editions. Essential for all literature collections.
