Thanks Gertrude, I didn't know you were a genius until you told me. I now know where Cozzens got his “and then Arthur Miller did this, and then Arthur Miller did that.” Jesus. I understand that the concept is possibly innovative, at least distinct, but the execution is lacking, to say the least. This is as boring as it gets, whether it is really similar to Toklas' voice or not (and how could I know that and why would I care?) Stein thinks she's like Dafoe. She's not at all (and I don't even like Dafoe). Much better off reading A Moveable Feast if you care about Americans in Paris back in the day. I don't know why anyone but the biggest Stein fan would read this. I can't figure out why I read this. It isn't on any list. A complete waste of my time. I think 4/10 is really generous actually.
