Description - Dazzler by Steven Bach

"Everything we want from a show business biography: fertile cultural history, high-minded artistic evaluation--and a lot of terrific gossip along the way."--Washington Post . From the Algonquin Round Table to the Gershwins and the Hollywood moguls, Moss Hart knew and delighted everybody. Vanity Fair has called him "one of American theater's greatest geniuses," the man responsible for such indelible successes as A Star Is Born , Camelot , and My Fair Lady . His rags-to-riches autobiography, Act One , became one of the most successful and beloved books ever published about the lure of the theater. But it ended at the beginningwhen Hart was only twenty-five. Now, at last, we have the whole and far richer story in this first full-scale biography of "the Prince of Broadway." Here Steven Bach explores the private Moss Hart, revealing his struggles with self-doubt, depression, and sexual identity, and the public one, recounting his creativity and charisma, his wit and grace. With thorough research and graceful prose, Steven Bach takes us on a journey to another time and place, where one man created a dazzling world for himself and for all American theatergoers.
