From the Publisher"Well worth reading. He supplies a great deal of fascinating biographical information; his musical analyses are blessedly easy to follow; he quotes extensively from critics, and points out positive qualities in both composers which have often been overlooked."—Times Literary Supplement
"A well-written, engaging account—simultaneously successful as critical history and biographical study—by an author obviously in love with his subject."—American Theater
Acclaim for the first two volumes of
Stephen Citron's distinguished series The Great Songwriters
Noel and Cole
"A must for the theater buff."
"A courageous and highly successful chronicle of two great legends of the theater, music, and film worlds during the first half of the 20th century."
"For would-be songwriters, the book seems priceless. For the rest of us, it is well worth reading."
—New York Newsday
Oscar Hammerstein 2nd and Alan Jay Lerner
"Highly entertaining and admirably comprehensive."
—The Chicago Tribune
"Told with loving detail by that musical sleuth Stephen Citron, this is a great book about two great men."
—Don Black, lyricist of Sunset Boulevard and Song and Dance
"His book time-travels the reader into the world and words of two masters creating for a musical theater whose moment will not be seen again."
