Gertrude Stein made a lot of people angry when she published her memoirs, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. A handful of artists and writers (Henri Matisse and Tristan Tzara, among others) disagreed with a bunch of the events she told; they ended up publishing a line-by-line treatise, Testimony Against Gertrude Stein, about everything she got wrong. UbuWeb just released it. Moral of the story: just because people disagree with you doesn’t mean that you won’t become famous. [UbuWeb]
