Description
Originally published in 1993, this provocative account of the life of composer and songwriter George Gershwin examines his character, his complex relationship with brother and collaborator Ira, and his several romantic affairs. This 2006 edition includes newly discovered information in a new introduction by six-time ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award–winner Joan Peyser.

"George Gershwin's family has carefully guarded the composer's image since his death at 38 in 1937, going as far as to deny the persuasive claims of one man to be Gershwin's son. Joan Peyser establishes that blood tie fairly conclusively and gives an interesting account of Gershwin's relationship with his family and the influence of black music on his work."—LATimes
