About the Author:

Musical theater historian Robert Kimball is the editor of The Complete Lyrics of Cole Porter. He lives in New York City.

From Booklist:

Presuming your library serves a community in which anybody sings or gets together to put on a musical, do you need to be told you probably gotta have this book? Ira Gershwin was the lyricist for his brother, George, without whom it sometimes seems there would be no songs in America, as well as, after George's death, for Weill, Copland, Kern, and similar luminaries. Although it's not apparent at this writing that the index herein will be the most useful kind--namely, one of titles, first lines, and first lines of refrains (because they, aka the choruses, are the most familiar parts of songs to the most people)--at least all the titles appear under the appropriate years or shows in the table of contents. The lyrics proper come in three-column display; each song has a headnote relaying its place in a show (or shows), who first sang it, its alternate titles, etc., and sometimes including Ira's comments from his own selection from his work, Lyrics on Several Occasions (1959). Hey, even if the index turns out less than ideal, still--'s wonderful! 's marvelous! Ray Olson
