[light shelfwear to bottom edge, faint soiling to page edges; jacket shows very light wear along top edge, a couple of tiny scrape marks at upper right-hand corner of front panel]. (B&W photographs) Biography of the composer of "Tea for Two," "Sometimes I'm Happy," and numerous other popular tunes, whose 1925 musical "No, No, Nanette" was the biggest musical comedy hit of the decade. As revealed in this biography, Youmans "was a true child of the Lost Generation -- afflicted by tragedy, burdened by his accomplishments, drawn to hedonism and drink -- a difficult and demanding character straight out of a Fitzgerald novel who ultimately destroyed much of his later music and drove himself to despair."
