    DescriptionWe see Bob Fosse's legacy everywhere--from smash cuts on TV to Michael Jackson's white gloves circa "Billy Jean" to Beyonce's moves in the "Single Ladies" video. Yet in spite of Fosse's deep cultural significance, no biography has ever brought him fully to life, unveiling the man behind the jazz hands, the bowler hat, and the swaggering sex appeal. Now, acclaimed cultural historian Sam Wasson traces Fosse's numberless reinventions of himself over a career that would spawn "The Pajama Game, ""Cabaret, ""Pippin, ""Chicago, ""All That Jazz, " and other iconic works of art and earn him Oscars, Tonys, and Emmys. Wasson traces not only Fosse's prodigious professional life, but his intense relationships with everyone from Liza Minnelli, Fred Astaire, and Neil Simon to Shirley MacLaine, Jessica Lange, and Dustin Hoffman. Through extensive interviews with collaborators and lovers and unprecedented access to Fosse's archives, Wasson also reveals the deep wounds that propelled his subject's excessive appetites--for spotlights, women, and life itself. In "Fosse, " Wasson's stylish, effervescent prose proves the ideal vehicle for reanimating Bob Fosse as he truly was--after hours, close up, and in vibrant color.
