I like memoirs/biographies. And, I liked this one. It gave an interesting look at what life was like in the 1920's, 1930's, and 1940's for those who ran with the Broadway and songwriter crowd. But, because of the title, I expected to learn a lot more about George Gershwin from this. Gershwin actually plays a rather small part in the total book.
Except for that disappointment, I did really enjoy this book. It was fun reading about the eccentricities of the author's family.
