Romantic Couples Through the Ages

Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas


Even the greatest minds can be reduced to foolishness by love. Despite their silly pet names for one another, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas made an impressive intellectual team, with Alice serving as Gertrude's most valuable editor and critic. The couple surrounded themselves with very distinguished company in their home in Paris, inviting prominent American expatriates to join them in conversation and debate. Among their frequent guests were Ernest Hemingway, Thornton Wilder, and Ezra Pound. After Stein's death, Toklas published a book of recipes and memories of their time together, which serves as a tribute to their shared love and devotion.
