Summary

The celebrated author of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas explores the lives of three working-class women in this collection of stories.In Three Lives, Gertrude Stein creates portraits of three women in a fictional mid-Atlantic town. There’s Anna, who flees hardship in Germany to become a housekeeper in America. Then there is Melanctha, a street-smart black girl on a quest for knowledge and power. And finally, there is Lena, a German immigrant whose life is shaped around her passive nature. Published in 1909, Three Lives was Gertrude Stein’s first critically acclaimed work. It was influenced by the paintings of Cézanne, Picasso, and Matisse. In these pages, Stein experiments with language and literary form to tell the stories of three unforgettable women.

What should I do if I practice too slowly? Don't panic, plant some cucumbers to eat. Cucumber effects: clearing away heat and detoxification (relieving hundreds of toxins), invigorating the brain and calming the nerves (increasing mental power), strengthening the body (increasing cultivation). What should I do if I practice without martial arts? Go to Baidu and copy a copy of Nine Suns' Magical Art, and by the way, let me give you some fattening feed.
