Gertrude Stein

Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) 

Perhaps most famous for her books Tender Buttons and The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein was a Jewish-American poet, playwright, and novelist. Born in Pennsylvania, Stein moved to Paris in her twenties where she met her long-time partner Alice.

Excerpted below Q.E.D., from the Latin phrase “Quod Erat Demonstrandum,” is an early, autobiographically inspired, short story of hers about a love triangle between three women travelling together. Written in 1903, the story was only published decades later, after her death.
