A Ship Without a Sail by Gary Marmorstein

A Ship Without a Sail by Gary Marmorstein (Simon & Shusteris a new biography of Lorenz Hart - one of the greatest of all Broadway lyricists. It's not just the music - it's also a tale of law suits and litigation. Of chicanery and contested wills - compelling.
He was the son of hustler and grafter, Max Hart. At Columbia University, Lorenz Hart met a younger student, Richard Rodgers. They would eventually write 26 Broadway musicals over a period of roughly 20 years, as well as several Hollywood film musicals. A sometimes exuberant, sometimes troubled artist, Hart wrote the lyrics to hundreds of songs, many of which have become standards in the American Songbook.
