"The Gershwin Years is the chronicle of how it all happened, from George's early days as a song plugger and Ira's first attempts at lyric writing while he was a steam-bath attendant through their subsequent conquest of Broadway and Hollywood. There are pictures and anecdotes about such associates and friends as Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Astaires, Gertrude Lawrence and Maurice Ravel, scenes from musicals and movies, snapshots from the family album, sketches and paintings by both George and Ira. Also included are a new critical bibliography, a revised comprehensive listing of all the Gershwins' compositions, complete with show sources and dates of first performances, and a new "informal discography" of what the authors consider to be the best available recordings of the Gershwin's fabulous legacy, written in collaboration with Kay Swift." --Inside flap.
