A series of local crimes inspired this attempt by the author to relieve her writer's block. A droll detective novel, its central mystery involves rediscovering the path to creativity. Although remembered mostly for her audacious bestseller, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein was a unique literary artist of the twentieth century who left a voluminous body of work, including novels, essays, poetry, and prose. Stymied - just once - by a case of writer's block, Stein forayed into the world of mystery fiction to rediscover her path to creativity. Combining elements of free association and interior monologue that earned her reputation as an avant-garde stylist, Stein drew from a summer's worth of mysterious events at her French country home for inspiration. Blood on the Dining-Room Floor is the brilliant result. A possible murder disrupts the peaceful setting when, in a nearby village, Madame Pernollet is found on the cement courtyard of her husband's hotel. Did she fall from a window above . . . or was she pushed? Was there someone who wanted the preoccupied woman out of the way? In a departure from the typical whodunit, with nary a detective to lead the way, Stein lays out a series of crimes and clues, enticing readers to come up with their own verdict on the baffling events of one "unnatural summer." AUTHOR: "America is my country," declared expatriate Gertrude Stein, "but Paris is my hometown." In addition to writing novels, stories, plays, and poems, Stein conducted a Parisian salon that was frequented by an international array of avant-garde artists and authors.… (mais)

Did you know that Gertrude Stein wrote a Murder Mystery ? No neither did I until I came across this book. Did she in fact write a Murder Mystery ? Well I've just read this book which tells me that I've just read one,but I'm still not sure!.Help,I'm starting to sound like Stein herself.
Of course anyone familiar with the works of this most obscure of writers will know just how difficult she is,and this story (story ?) is no exception. It begins - "The had a Country House.A house in the country is not the same as a country house.This was a country house.They had one servant,a woman.They had changed to two servants,a man and a woman that is to say husband and wife." - It gets more and more obscure at it goes along.
The book contains an introduction and an afterword by John Herbert Gill,which certainly helps. We also have two short pieces "A Waterfall and a Piano" and "Is Dead" which tie in.
Weird though the whole thing is,there is nevertheless something lurking here which works. ( )
