Synopsis

From the Algonquin Round Table to the Gershwins and the Hollywood moguls, Moss Hart knew and delighted everybody. Vanity Fair has called him "one of American theatre's greatest geniuses," the man responsible for such indelible successes as A Star Is Born , Camelot , and My Fair Lady . His rags-to-riches autobiography, Act One , became one of the most successful and beloved books ever published about the lure of the theatre. But it ended at the beginning,when Hart was only twenty-five. Now, at last, we have the whole and far richer story in this first full-scale biography of "the Prince of Broadway." Here Steven Bach explores the private Moss Hart, revealing his struggles with self-doubt, depression, and sexual identity, and the public one, recounting his creativity and charisma, his wit and grace. With thorough research and graceful prose, Steven Bach takes us on a journey to another time and place, where one man created a dazzling world for himself and for all American theatregoers.

Steven Bach, author of the best-selling Final Cut and Marlene Dietrich, teaches at Columbia University and Bennington College and divides his time between Europe and the United States.
