Read full description of the books:
This is a scholarly yet playful investigation into the sensual aspect of Gertrude Stein's writing, including her "caressing of nouns" and her quiet, cunning way of bringing lesbian sexuality into the text of her experimental poems, plays, and novels. As Stein says, "Lifting belly is a spectacle"! Chessman models a way of reading Stein's gorgeous experiments, from TENDER BUTTONS to the late novel IDA. To read these works is to "twin" with their author, and to make sense of them is also a kind of making love.
