This is a fascinating account of Stein's travels in America following the success of "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas". Stein finds many things interesting about America, and through her descriptions, so does the reader. Her descriptions of the habits, manners, lifestyle, and thoughts of Americans are very simple but profoundly accurate. Being a Gertrude Stein work, Everybody's Autobiography also features amazing prose that is often challenging but always rewarding. Surprisingly, Everybody's Autobiography is very approachable once one adjusts to Stein's style. This was the first Stein work I read and I've already begun reading The Making of Americans. I just can't recommend this book [and Stein in general] enough.

i usually find stein's play with words a bit frustrating. however, this is a more readable book, one of her most accessible works. insightful in its view of fame & narcissism in america.
The description (provided by the publisher) says that "'Everybody's Autobiography' is Stein at her most accessible and her most serious, and may yet prove to be among her most popular books." This is probably misleading.

You must read "The Autobiography of Alice B Toklas" first to get the gist of this book. And after you've read "...Alice B Toklas," you don't need to read "Everybody's Autobiography."

The voice is clearly Stein's -- and an important voice, full of ideas and wordplay and backing-onto-itself and repetition and variation and images and humor and unexpected turns, and one of the few women (and a lesbian!) to make onto the required reading list for modernist literature. It's slightly more mature than "... Alice B Toklas," but not as much fun. And you also have to know that famous names that Stein casually drops over and over throughout "Everybody's Autobiography" and their critical standing and her biases and her friend's feuds and who-knew-who to get the full meaning of it.

There's plenty of good stuff about American in late 1930's but some of it is just a little bit nasty. ("...Alice B. Toklas" was published in 1933 and prompted Stein to return to American after many years, which resulted in "Everybody's Autobiography.") I prefer the sparkling tone and the light comedy and the clever observations of "... Alice B Toklas." This is for academics and completists only.
