The Life of Harry James

Peter J. Levinson

  • The era of the big bands is brought wonderfully to life by Levinson's lively prose
  • The fist biography ever written on Harry James
  • Levinson was a friend of the musician for twenty-four years, so the portrait is particularly intimate
  • Harry James's marriage to Betty Grable, and their subsequent extravagent lifestyle in Hollywood, is unveiled
