Book Title: Ida: A Novel

Author: Gertrude Stein

Book Description:

Ida: A Novel, particularly Logan Esdale's long-needed new edition, reminds me of so many of Gertrude Stein's great lessons -- about beginning again, about being known, about saying yes. This is a book that spurs me, as I hope this copy will urge others, to take risks and to remember. Stein writes:  "Saddest of all words are these, she might have been."
