"It is a rather curious thing..." so begins the first lecture by Gertrude Stein in this book. It has been 75 years since these lectures were first presented by Stein at the University of Chicago, one stop on her 6-month U.S. lecture tour in 1934-35. The book is a reprint of the original from 1935.

Yet the four lectures presented here are as fresh and provocative as if they were part of a university's creative writing curriculum in the 21st century.

Stein's use of language, her humor, her strong opinions, her unwavering beliefs, and yes, even some things that don't make sense are all here in 96 pages. "Can I say it more than often enough, " she intones in one of the lectures. And in another: "That is something that is really not anything and I have found out that it is made up of anything and that anything is that one thing."

Enjoy these lectures. Read them aloud to get their full effect.

The book contains the original Introduction by Thornton Wilder who invited Stein to the university to lecture and would become a very good friend, as well as a new Foreword by scholar Liesel Olson which gives the historic background of how these lectures came about.

And though it may be "a rather curious thing," it is Gertrude Stein at her best - "can I say it more than often enough."

It is too bad, however, that for such a slim volume, the book was not published in hardcover, as was the original.
