Praise

"The definitive biography of the bon vivant who was the supreme master of sophisticated popular song." —The New York Times Book Review

"A fine biography. . . . It brings to our understanding . . . the ways that the contradictions and compulsions of [Porter’s] life explain the emotional force and timelessness [of] the music." — The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Thorough . . . fascinating. . . . Loaded with juicy gossip. [It] succeeds in evoking Porter’s white-tie-and-orchids set [and] his active, if closeted, gay life in Manhattan and Hollywood." —People

"Read this book. . . . You will spend time with, and get to know, one of the great creative figures of the twentieth century."  –Betty Comden, The New York Observer
