saying no to Gertrude Stein

Here is a letter sent by publisher A. Fifield to Miss Stein, turning her down in the most delicate way. Makes me feel better about the publisher who turned me down by saying that there were many Beatles' memoirs, that mine wasn't different enough to stand out and would get lost in the crowd.


  1. A rejection is a rejection is a rejection.

  2. Ah, but this is one fine rejection. Surely even Gertrude could see that. Perhaps not.
