This is the best and most authoritative edition of Tender Buttons, a major fixture in the modernist canon, featuring facsimiles of Stein's corrections, in her own handwriting. Our edition comes out on the centennial of its original publication, and will relate to the worldwide celebrations next year. Every previous edition has contained dozens of errors - from minor punctuation problems to entire phrases omitted. None has included the corrections and additions Stein personally made after the book appeared. This edition resolves over 100 variances among archival materials and previous versions of the book, providing the first reliable text of Tender Buttons in a compact format that is as approachable for casual readers as it is reliable for more serious scholars. A Note on the Text describes the methods behind this edition and lists all variances resolved. An Afterword by Juliana Spahr discusses the enduring significance of Tender Buttons at its centennial anniversary.

"Tender Buttons is a showcase of Stein's joyful draw to words."--Dina Weinstein, Jewish Book Council "What distinguishes this edition from others is over 100 edits, some indicated by Stein in her unmistakable handwriting found by editor Perlow in a first-edition copy held at the University of Colorado, as well as other corrections gleaned from her papers at Beinecke Library of Yale University and from the Library of America edition."--Karren LaLonde Alenier, Scene4 Magazine "She did in writing what Picasso and her other painter friends were doing in their Cubist painting. Writing had to be moved out of the grip of the nineteenth century. All naturalistic description, romanticism and sentimentality had to be left behind."--Renate Stendhal, San Francisco Bay Times "Tender Buttons is a dazzling work that rewards close study and requires a willingness to let go of the need for concrete, literal storytelling."--Christopher Luna, Rain Taxi Review of Books "Tender Buttons is a showcase of Stein's joyful draw to words."--Dina Weinstein, Jewish Book Council "What distinguishes this edition from others is over 100 edits, some indicated by Stein in her unmistakable handwriting found by editor Perlow in a first-edition copy held at the University of Colorado, as well as other corrections gleaned from her papers at Beinecke Library of Yale University and from the Library of America edition."--Karren LaLonde Alenier, Scene4 Magazine "She did in writing what Picasso and her other painter friends were doing in their Cubist painting.
