During the forty years that she was Gertrude Stein's constant companion, Alice B. Toklas had a secret ambition, which she confesses in these pages: to write a book of her own. When she finally came to do so after Miss Stein's death, the two consuming interests of her life merged: her years with Miss Stein in France, where they were in constant contact with the great and near great; and the superb food she took so much pleasure in preparing for Miss Stein and her distinguished guests. Includes an Index.
