Description: Although he could play piano in only one key -- F-sharp -- and never learned to read music, or to transcribe it, Irving Berlin published some eight hundred songs, dozens of them part of the enduring body of Broadway lore. Berlin was born in Russia in 1888, four years before his family emigrated to America and settled in New York City. His teenage years were spent working as a busker and singing waiter in the flamboyantly disreputable Bowery bars.

Berlin published his first song in 1911. A prolific combination of genius and schmaltz, he would go on to compose some of the most popular songs -- "White Christmas", "Easter Parade", "God Bless America" -- and stage and screen musicals -- There's No Business Like Show Business, Top Hat, Annie Get Your Gun -- of all time. With the Same contagious enthusiasm and musicological insight that made his Gershwin the definitive biography, Edward Jablonski explains how Irving Berlin became the personification of American theater.
