Gertrude Stein was an American author and poet known for her modernist writings. She was an influential member of the "Lost Generation," a term she coined.
Natalie Clifford Barney is known for being an American expatriate in Paris. However, she's also been described as the Queen of Lesbians during her time.
If there was great love story among the Lost Generation writers, we believe it was the long relationship between Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas.
