About Time Someone Wrote This

But then, I much preferred Rodgers with him than with Hammerstein:

Gary Marmorstein’s LORENZ HART: AN AMERICAN LIFE, a biography of the

tortured, brilliant lyricist (called “the Poet Laureate of America” by

F. Scott Fitzgerald) who composed (with Richard Rodgers) such classics

as “My Funny Valentine” and “Blue Moon”, to Bob Bender at Simon &

Schuster, in a good deal, in a pre-empt, by Dan Conaway at Writers

House (NA).

Though I am curious to see if Marmorstein’s take will supercede that of Frederick Nolan’s from a decade or so ago.
