Synopsis: Celebrated pianist, conductor, and composer Peter Duchin has been providing music for U.S. presidents, society galas, and charity events for more than 30 years. Now, in this compelling autobiography, Duchin offers both a poignant personal memoir and a fascinating account of life on the road with the band.

Review: A strange and compelling mix of celebrity bio and social history, Ghost of a Chance is the autobiography of bandleader Peter Duchin. The son of an even more famous bandleader, Eddy Duchin, Peter Duchin was sent off to be raised by the friends of his socialite mother after her death. Those friends just happened to be the Harrimans, Averell and Marie. After watching "The Eddy Duchin Story," the Hollywood film version of his (biological) father's life, the younger Duchin recalls feeling "pretty beat up and confused." The same can be said of his life in general, but that's what happens when your paternal legacy includes one father who ranked among the top entertainers of an era and another who happened to be one of the richest and most important world figures of a century.
