George Gershwin in The Jerusalem Post

Cover for Rimler: George Gershwin: An Intimate Portrait. Click for larger imageLast week, The Jerusalem Post newspaper featured a review of Walter Rimler’s George Gershwin: An Intimate Portrait.

“Rimler shines in weaving together anecdotes, correspondence and a wealth of interviews with the composer and his contemporaries to create a vibrant, flesh-and-blood picture of the man and his music in a readable and enjoyable book. Rimler’s Gershwin is genuinely likable, if somewhat arrogant: a mama’s boy to a coldhearted matriarch; a brother who was abandoned in deteriorating health; and a playboy who finally tried to settle with the wrong girl.”
