Description

"Mitchell James Kaplan [brings] his impressive knowledge of history, composition, and the heart's whims to bear on this shining rendition of Swift and Gershwin's star-crossed love." -Therese Anne Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of Z and A Good Neighborhood

"A lilting, jazzy ballad as catchy as a Gershwin tune... Rhapsody will have you humming, toe-tapping, and singing along with every turn of the page." -Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network and The Huntress

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, elusive 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 from a brain tumor at the age of thirty-eight.

Set in Jazz Age New York City, this stunning work of fiction, for fans of The Paris Wife and Loving Frank , explores the timeless bond between two brilliant, strong-willed artists. George Gershwin left behind not just a body of work unmatched in popular musical history, but a woman who loved him with all her heart, knowing all the while that he belonged not to her, but to the world.
