About the Author
Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was born in Allegheny, PA, of German-Jewish immigrants. She moved to Paris in 1903 and lived in France for the rest of her life. She published Ida: A Novel in 1941, eight years after she became famous for her best-selling Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. Logan Esdale teaches at California State University, Long Beach.
"For those brave souls who undertake to read and teach that strangest of short novels in British and American literature, Gertrude Stein's Ida, Logan Esdale's edition is the indispensable text. It is a major contribution to the scholarship and the interpretation of Gertrude Stein's literary art. Esdale brilliantly sets forth the history and the world of Ida, its universe of discourse. If only I'd had Esdale's text when I was supposing what Ida said."--Neil Schmitz, State University of New York at Buffalo--Neil Schmitz
"Esdale's innovative approach results in an enriching contribution to Stein scholarship. . . . Highly recommended."--L./I>--L. Simon "Choice "
"With Yale's re-release...of [Gertrude Stein's] novel Ida, a new era for Stein scholarship has been inaugurated."--Christopher Schmidt, Boston Review--Boston Review "Christopher Schmidt "
