The Best Weill Biography Yet Nov. 8 2013
By Lloyd Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Yes, Lotte Lenya's in there, too. But it's really the story of a man who set out to create his own life and art in defiance of every norm and restriction. I have a particular interest in this era of German history, and I've never seen a better reconstruction of life in the Weimar Republic than Mordden provides. He has a tendency to stray from
the matter at hand to elaborate on some apparently minor point. But by the time he's done, you realize that it isn't a minor point at all. This is a rich story told in a very lively, even sprightly manner. I mostly know the author's work from his quixotic fiction, and he has the same personality when narrating his non-fiction. It's all storytelling, with
cliffhanger chapter endings and sudden twists. I like his theory that there aren't two different Kurt Weill careers, one in Germany and one in the U. S. Mordden says Weill was interested in creating a new kind of music play all the way along, and in America he perfected it. Readers should also look up Foster Hirsch's Kurt Weill book, because he goes into details about the Weill shows that Mordden doesn't get to.

do not recommend Sept. 20 2013
By Prof. J.R. Potuto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is not really a bio of either, and it is pretty limited even in describing their life together. It is very disjointed. I found it a big disappointment.
