Alice Babette Toklas (April 30, 1877 – March 7, 1967) was an American-born member of the Parisian avant-garde of the early 20th century, and the life partner of American writer Gertrude Stein. Alice B. Toklas was born in San Francisco into a middle-class Polish Jewish family. Her paternal grandfather was a rabbi, whose son Feivel (usually known as Ferdinand) Toklas moved to San Francisco in 1863.

What is Remembered book. Alice Babette Toklas was an American-born member of the Parisian avant-garde of the early 20th century. She was born into a middle-class Jewish family (her father had been a Polish army officer) and attended schools in both San Francisco and Seattle.

The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book, first published in 1954, is one of the bestselling cookbooks of all time

The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book, first published in 1954, is one of the bestselling cookbooks of all time. Toklas, writer Gertrude Stein's life partner, wrote the book to make up for her unwillingness at the time to write her memoirs, in deference to Stein's 1933 book, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. This work is as much of an autobiography as it is a cookbook, in that it contains as many personal recollections as it does recipes.

WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT: This is is about Alice B. Toklas and her world, but it is not "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas" which was written by Gertrude Stein. Many have fussed, fumed, and fretted because they concluded Gertrude wrote a selfie about Gertrude. Others considered Stein's book a love letter to her companion of 40 plus years, that Stein wrote in Alice's authentic voice, and that as an original literary genre, the "Autobiography" was a hoot, rather like Virginia Woolf's time & gender bending novel, "Orlando," a paean to Vita Sackville-West & Knole.

Happily for those who enjoy a lit'ry detective experience and a story well-told of a creative period in the arts, we have several books written by Alice Babette (Babette? Yup.) Toklas. One is the famous "The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook," whose first recipe involves covering a fine young chicken with truffles beneath its skin, than stuffing the cavity to bursting with truffles. She was that kind of a cook---well, actually Alice mostly supervised cooks rather than doing the kitchen work herself. The chapters are interspersed with stories of Gertrude's life and hers and the Very Famous People who came to 27 rue Fleurus & other abodes. It was written after Gertrude's death and is one marker of Alice's authentic voice.

"What Is Remembered" also was written to help beguile the emptier days. It begins with Alice's grandparents, her early life in San Francisco including the earthquake, and continues onward to how she came to Paris with her dear friend Harriet, how she met Gertrude, and their lives together. It is much like "The Cookbook" in structure (chronological), in anecdotes and the Very Famous People.

To my way of thinking, Alice's way of thinking was honored in the Stein "Autobiography." Although after so many years, did Alice channel Stein or did Stein channel Alice's abruptness and non-sequitors (for instance, "I was very witty that night with Apollinaire. I do not remember what I said.")

It also has a heart-breakingly sad last paragraph, an epitaph to times lost. Gertrude goes back and forth on whether to risk an abdominal operation. "The whole afternoon was troubled, confused, and very uncertain and later in the afternoon they took her away on a wheeled stretcher to the operating room and I never saw her again."

Written in 1963, the copy I am reviewing was reprinted in 1985 as a quality paperback on heavy paper, with black & white pictures including fine portraits of Gertrude by Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, and Carl Van Vechten. Snapshots aplenty of Alice, but no portraits in painting or photography. There are 10 chapters, 186 pages, a serviceable index, and no table of contents.

OVERALL. Boring this is not if readers are even somewhat interested in Toklas/Stein and Paris between wars. At the very low used book prices, it is a splendid value. Good reading aloud while the chicken with truffles or the more notorious Brownies are cooking. Ezra, T.S., Hem, Thorny, Sylvia, Alfonso XIII of Spain, and quite a few others may drop in.

Very interesting book, lots to think about. Too much name dropping and glosses over a variety of grim topics. It would have been a better book if more direct and honest... but a unique literary history perspective/source. Worth reading, and reading between the linese

a lot of names, places and dates not too much of a story.
