‘You see that Anna led an arduous and troubled life… Her face was worn, her cheeks were thin, her mouth drawn and firm, and her light blue eyes were very bright. Sometimes they were full of lightning and sometimes full of humour, but they were always sharp and clear.’Under the grey, industrial skies of Bridgepoint (modelled on Baltimore), three women – Anna, Melanctha and Lena – live, work and love. Painting a powerful portrait of women trapped in drudgery, Stein’s Three Lives is a ground-breaking portrayal of abuse and non-heteronormative sexuality, and is a searing indictment of the struggles of the working class in turn-of-the-century America.

An astonishing work that toys with style and conventions, Three Lives stands as a monument in Modernism and experimental literature, and comes from the pen of a writer whose intelligence and understanding bleeds from every page.
