Reviews
"If George Gershwin provided much that the world's listeners have savored as America's musical daily bread, Larry Starr's spirited book goes a long way toward showing how he did it." --Richard Crawford, author of America's Musical Life: A History--Richard Crawford

"Larry Starr's valuable new book...is not a traditional biography...but rather an insightful, technically intricate yet easy-to-follow study of Gershwin's music, particularly as it came out of the Broadway tradition."--Tim Page, The Washington Post

--Tim Page "The Washington Post "
"....a sad story but a very illuminating one, and the book is an enthralling read."--Peter Dickinson, Gramophone-- (09/01/2011)
