Description

Al Jolson was a famous American entertainer in the first 30 years of this century and his career is a familiar rags to riches story. But beneath his popular exterior lay a man who treated women badly, hogged the spotlight, and thought nothing of betraying most of his closest friends. The author explores both sides of this extraordinary man and his book, the result of 14 years of research, offers insights into the early days of Broadway.show more
