About the Author
Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was an American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. She was the author of many books, including The Making of Americans, Geography and Plays, Tender Buttons, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, and How To Write.
William Gaddis (1922-98) stands among the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. The winner of two National Book Awards (for "J R"  and "A Frolic of His Own" ), he wrote five novels during his lifetime, including "Carpenter's Gothic "(1985), "Agap? Agape" (published posthumously in 2002), and his early masterpiece "The Recognitions" (1955). He is loved and admired for his stylistic innovations, his unforgettable characters, his pervasive humor, and the breadth of his intellect and vision.
Steven Meyer is Associate Professor of English at Washington University, St Louis. He is the author of Irresistible Dictation: Gertrude Stein and the Correlations of Writing and Science (2003). He has co-edited a special issue of Configurations on the surge of interest in Whitehead's 'process philosophy' among practitioners of science studies and Literature and Science. He recently served on the Executive Committee of the Modern Language Association Division on Literature and Science (2011-16; chair, 2014-15). He has also been awarded fellowships by Yale's Whitney Humanities Center, the Stanford Humanities Center, and Rutger's Center for Cultural Analysis.
"Essential for all literature collections... Several of Stein's titles returned to print in 1995, but none more important than "The Making of Americans.""--"Library Journal"
