In 1933 Irving Berlin wrote to composer-lyricist Cole Porter, "I am mad about "Night and Day,"" Millions of others throughout the world have been "mad about" that Porter gem, as well as dozens of others, including, to name just a few, "Begin the Beguine, From This Moment On, It's De-Lovely, Just One of Those Things, Love for Sale," and "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," Cole Porter (1891-1964) set new standards for popular song-writing, and his lyrics and melodies are as bright and sophisticated today as when they first dazzled audiences decades ago. Porter's own life matched that of his songs for urbanity, wit, and elegance, and in New York, Hollywood, and on the Continent he was an arbiter of taste and fashion and part of the glamorous international set of the Twenties and Thirties. He numbered among his friends Cary Grant, Noel Coward, Fred Astaire, Ethel Merman, Elsa Maxwell, Fanny Brice, and Monty Woolley, as well as many other stars of stage, screen, or society. "Cole Porter: A Biography" is a delightfully written and meticulously researched book that takes us from the composer's Indiana childhood to his celebrity days, discussing with exceptional honesty his family and friends, his wife and his many lovers, and above all, his music. Charles Schwartz's account of Cole Porter is the most revealing, comprehensive, and objective biography to date of an extraordinarily talented and fascinating man.
