Praise

 “Kalman’s signature artwork, color-drenched and featuring heavy black line, is as individual as Stein’s writing . . . Toss out your old editions, this is the one you’ll want to own.” Library Journal, starred review

“THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ALICE B. TOKLAS will have you itching to hop a plane to CDG . . . Stein captures both the voice of her partner, Alice Toklas, and the shimmering energy of the time. Kalman brings that world further to life with expressive illustrations of the couple, their home and travels, and contemporaries like Matisse and Cezanne. Her work has a wry, witty quality that lends a sense of immediacy to words written nearly a century ago. It’s just the thing to tote on your next vacation-need we say where to?” – Travel & Leisure 

“Whimsical illustrations meet quirky prose in this tag-team reinvention of the iconic 1933 book. An award-winning New Yorker illustrator, designer and author, Kalman takes on the challenge of illustrating Stein’s iconic ‘auto’ biography of her longtime companion Toklas . . . Kalman’s 70-plus color illustrations, rendered in her distinctive playful and Fauve-esque style, perfectly reflect the artistic and intellectual world of Paris in the 1920s and ’30s . . . A sparkling, imaginative rendition of a literary classic.” – Kirkus, starred review
