Note: 
A biography that portrays Gershwin against the backdrop of the popular song, musical film and theatre industries in the first three decades of the twentieth century. Reconstruction of that world, which existed on the east and west coasts, is interesting social history. Gershwin lived a short but productive life. In this book, he is a shadowy figure but his Jewish family are lively, multi-dimensional personalities. Gershwin's Jewish origins and Jewish burial are integrated into the narrative in a matter-of-fact way.
