An Award-Winning Author
One evening in 1924, Katharine "Kay" Swift - the restless but loyal society wife of wealthy banker James Warburg and a serious pianist who longs for recognition - attends a concert. The piece: Rhapsody in Blue. The composer: a brilliant young musical genius named George Gershwin. Kay is transfixed, helpless to resist the magnetic pull of George's talent, charm, and swagger. Their ten-year love affair, complicated by her conflicted loyalty to her husband and the twists and turns of her own musical career, ends only with George's death at the age of thirty-eight. Set in Jazz Age New York, Rhapsody explores the timeless bond between two brilliant, strong-willed artists.
