Confessions of Another Young Man - Bravig Imbs

1936 - Henkle-Yewdale House, New York - First Edition
‘We liked Bravig, even though as Gertrude Stein said, his aim was to please’ – The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas

The charming memoir of Bravig Imbs, an amiable, pleasant, and enthusiastic Norwegian-American writer who, upon their first encounter in 1926, became one of Gertrude Stein’s reverent admirers in the years between the wars. Here, he eagerly recounts the fleeting cavalcade of artists, writers, musicians, pseudo-intellectuals, and
poseurs who frequented Gertrude’s salon in Paris.

Unfortunately, despite his devotion – Imbs would often play Miss Stein her favourite tune, ‘
The Trail of the Lonesome Pine’ on the violin – Stein ended their friendship due to her aversion to childbirth, after Bravig brought his pregnant wife to a boarding house near Gertrude’s country home.
