I have listened to George Gershwin’s music for quite some time but all that I really knew about him was that he had a brother named Ira. I now have a much deeper understanding of him and of his relationship with Katherine “Kay” Swift. Their relationship is brought to glowing life in this fine historical novel.
Spend time in jazz age New York with George and Kay. Each was a genuine musical talent and individual in their own right. Readers will be interested to watch their relationship evolve. What led Kay to George, despite her being married? How did their relationship unfurl?
Fans of historical fiction and of music will enjoy this novel. Give it a read.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
Note that I both listened to and read this book. The narration enhance my enjoyment of the novel.
