9781585676125: Cole: Biographical Essay

The merry and sad nights and days of the greatest lyricist-composer of them all suffuse the pages of this adoring tribute to Cole Porter . . . just when Kiss Me Kate has reconquered Broadway. Overlook's re-publication of Cole, very much in demand by Cole fans and musical theater buffs alike, marks the return to print of a classic chronicle of a life, a personality, and an era. The lyrics of nearly two hundred songs, among them such favorites as "Love for Sale," "I Love Paris," and "Begin the Beguine," featured alongside music sheets, private letters, examples of works in progress in Cole's own hand, and hundreds of pictures from the private albums of Linda and Cole Porter, combine in a marvelous tapestry to capture Cole's irrepressible spirit. Glimpses of Cole and his friends dazzling each other and the world at the Palazzo Rezzonico or on the beach at Antibes, of productions of Gay Divorce, The New Yorkers, and You Never Know, of Monty, NoŽl, Elsa, Tallulah, Gerald, and Sara, and of Ethel Merman, Bert Lahr, Bea Lillie, Fred Astaire, Gertrude Lawrence, Victor Moore, Rita Hayworth, and Danny Kaye return us to the decadent days. A graceful and revealing biographical essay by the late and incomparable Brendan Gill sets the tone for a book as stylish, as saucy, as self-confident, and as beguiling as the era it recreates.
