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.
