The composer of West Side Story, chief conductor of the NY Philharmonic, a friend of the powerful, and the life of every party, Leonard Bernstein was an American celebrity. But to his daughter Jamie, Bernstein was above all the compulsive teacher and father who taught his daughter to love the world in all its beauty and complexity. 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.
