There was a two-year break in the correspondence after Thomson, somewhat against his will, got into the middle of an argument between Stein and the French poet Georges Hugnet. On January 21, 1931, Stein sent Thomson a calling card that read simply: "Miss Gertrude Stein declines further acquaintance with Mr. Thomson" (189).

New York: Oxford University Press, 2010. Illustrations, appendices, bibliography, index. Thomson immediately spoke to Stein of her writing and his prior attempts to set it to music. On New Year's Day 1927, he presented Stein with a setting of her short poem "Susie Asado" for soprano and piano. In March he proposed, and she accepted, an operatic collaboration, and by June Stein sent Thomson a manuscript, soon to be titled Four Saints in Three Acts. Though it did not resemble a libretto in any conventional sense, Thomson declared the text ideal to his artistic requirements.

Thomas Dilworth, Susan Holbrook. Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thomson are known as much for their formidable egos as for their contributions to twentieth-century arts. That either could collaborate intimately with anyone is surprising

Thomas Dilworth, Susan Holbrook. That either could collaborate intimately with anyone is surprising. Yet Stein and Thomson did work together, magnificently so, most notably on the landmark opera Four Saints in Three Acts and the fanciful The Mother of Us All. This annotated collection of correspondence reveals the spark that existed between the two American masters over the course of their sometimes rocky friendship.

Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thomson are known as much for their formidable egos as for their contributions to twentieth-century arts. That either could collaborate intimately with anyone is surprising. Yet Stein and Thomson did work together, magnificently so, most notably on the landmark opera Four Saints in Three Acts and the fanciful The Mother of Us All. This annotated collection of correspondence reveals the spark that existed between the two American masters over the course of their sometimes rocky friendship. The roughly 400 letters written between 1926-1946 record the fascinating nature of their partnership-their mutual excitement over evolving projects and their process for bringing together two often radical aesthetic sensibilities. The style of the letters is careful and forceful when the relationship is strained, but most often it is relaxed and affectionate. As a record of friendship the letters are particularly compelling, replete with love, support, and mutual fascination. Not surprisingly, the correspondence is stylistically remarkable-Stein being arguably the most innovative literary modernist and Thomson the author of crisp, insightful, irreverent music criticism, the most quoted of his century. In addition to their artistic partnership, the letters provide a revealing glimpse into their individual careers in the realms of literature and music, as they document a web of mutual friendships and the vibrant artistic community of the early twentieth century. The editors' notes contextualize this valuable exchange and add a layer of richness and accessibility. The volume will interest readers, critics, and scholars in music, literature, avant garde arts and modern culture more generally.
