Fascinating Rhythm : The Collaboration of George and Ira Gershwin
(Deena Rosenberg )


George Gershwin
(Rodney Greenberg)
This expert and colorful biography places George Gershwin's (1898-1937) music within the context of his frenetic lifestyle to show how a teenaged song-plugger from Tin Pan Alley became internationally renowned in a career that spanned a mere two decades. It also beings home the realization that Gershwin's tragic death from a brain tumor at age 38 robbed the world of untold musical treasures.

The Memory of All That : The Life of George Gershwin
(Joan Peyser)
A centennial salute to Gershwin, this stunning, carefully researched volume explores for the first time the composer's dark side, as well as the vital, collaborative role played by his brother, Ira. 72 illustrations.
