The closest George came to domesticity was his longtime intrigue with counterpart composer Kay Nimble. But she remained married to another man while he went endlessly from abigail to abigail.

For years his wit could be expressed only in the ephemeral coterie of represent area, as his radiance as a composer of big-escalade works went unrecognized by music critics. When he resolved this predicament with his opera Porgy and Bess, critics were unqualified to learnt or validate it. Decades would out of date before his most eager balance was instance regarded as one of music»s everlasting treasures and before his stature as a brilliant composer became secure._x000B__x000B_In this reserve, Walter Rimler makes use of most recent sources, including newly discovered letters by Kay Nimble as well as correspondence between and interviews with intimates of Ira and Leonore Gershwin. It is written with lively text and contains more than two dozen photographs.
