Amazon Review
Irving Berlin (1888-1989) was unable to read or write music and could only play the piano in the key of F sharp major, yet for the first half of the 20th century, he was America's most successful major songwriter. This biography explores Berlin's early beginnings, his long, prolific career, and the bitterness and misanthropy of his later years. This is an unabridged reprint of the 1990 Viking edition.
