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

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