Summary:

"In a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir, the eldest daughter of revered composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth"--Jacket.

Summary:

Leonard Bernstein was an enormous celebrity during one of the headiest periods of American cultural life, as well as the most protean musician in twentieth century America. But to his eldest daughter, Jamie, he was above all the man in the scratchy brown bathrobe who smelled of cigarettes; the jokester and compulsive teacher who enthused about Beethoven and the Beatles. In public and private, Lenny was larger than life. Now she invites us into her family's private world, providing an intimate meditation on a complex and sometimes troubled man, the family he raised, and the music he composed. -- adapted from jacket.
