Gershwin (Life & Times)by Ruth Leon
Synopses & Reviews
This biography evokes brilliantly the pace and colour of New York in the 1920s and 30s, and firmly places Gershwin at the centre of the Jazz Age. His rise as one of the sons of Russian-Jewish immigrants on Manhattan's lower East Side to his unassailable position as the leading composer of his time makes Gershwin the embodiment of the American Dream.
This volume forms part of the "Life and Times" series of compact and accessible biographies which cover key political, literary and musical figures. This title is about the life and work of American composer George Gershwin.
