This still unrivaled biography portrays with precision and insight the tragically brief life,from the Brooklyn tenements to Broadway, Hollywood, and Carnegie Hall,of George Gershwin (1898-1937), a man whose music ( Lady Be Good, Of Thee I Sing, Rhapsody in Blue, Concerto in F, An American in Paris, Porgy and Bess ) and career,like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s,embodied the glamorous success and lost possibilities of the Jazz Age.
