The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas was published 80 years ago this fall. What better way to celebrate this anniversary and Alice’s birthday on April 30th (Happy 136 !), than with another autobiography, but not just any autobiography would do and it hasn’t!
Just a few weeks ago THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DANIEL J. ISENGART by Filip Noterdaeme was published by Outpost19. Honoring the style of Stein’s faux-biography, Noterdaeme writes about his partner and their life together. They are the new expats, one from Belgium, one from Germany, and their Paris is Brooklyn, New York City, the Hamptons and beyond.
But who are FilipandDaniel, the GertrudeandAlice of the 21st century, whose book ushers in the 80th anniversary year of THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY?
