Review: Mabel Dodge met Gertrude Stein and read her The Making of Americans in 1911. Intrigued with the contemporary thought offered in the book, Dodge spent decades exploring and following intellectual movements and their creators while developing an intimate relationship with Stein through correspondence. Patricia Everett tracks the journey through this fascinating collection of letters that are tied together with a compelling narrative. The story visits John Reed, Thornton Wilder, D. H. Lawrence and others while examining the curious relationship of the principals.
