"America is my country and Paris is my home town." —Gertrude Stein

The American writer Gertrude Stein (1874-1946), known for her innovative literary style, settled in Paris in 1903, where she supported the work of a number of artists and writers.

Paris France (1940) is a witty, anecdotal account of Stein's lifelong love affair with France. Written in the same fresh narrative style that made The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas a bestseller, it unites Stein's childhood memories of Paris with her observations about French culture—everything from cooking to the character of men, women, and animals. She also discusses the art of painting and relates amusing stories of life among some of her famous friends.
