Publisher's Summary

The classic Gertrude Stein novel Making of Americans follows a family through three generations in a fascinatingly unconventional style, exploring the psychology and personality of these characters through time.

Gertrude Stein held a unique position at the center of the modernist movement. She was a novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. Born in America, she moved with her family to Paris where she ran a Paris salon frequented by many famous historical figures, such as Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Henri Matisse, Ezra Pound, Sherwood Anderson, and Sinclair Lewis.

This is a Voices of Today and Audiobooks Unleashed production, narrated by: Sarah Sampino, Stephanie Nemeth-Parker, Melissa Green, Austenne Grey, Sara Sheckells, Lisa Ware, Aven Shore, Amy Soakes, Amanda Stribling, and Kendra Murray.

Super long anti-novel only for the completionists

If you like Stein, maybe you'll enjoy this book. I struggled to finish it, but I made it. Repeating and repeating almost drove me insane, but the narrators did a fantastic job on such a dull text.
