REVIEW: ‘Rhapsody,’ a new novel about Kay Smith and George Gershwin by Mitchell James Kaplan

Mitchell James Kaplan’s Rhapsody is an engaging, thoughtful retelling of the life of Kay Smith, the 20th-century pianist and composer. The book, a work of historical fiction, tracks her life from young adulthood to her eventual marriage with Jimmy Warburg to her interactions with many musicians and artists in the heyday of the Big Apple’s Jazz Age. There are side trips to Paris, Connecticut and Reno, Nevada, but the heart of the novel is set in Manhattan and its many music venues — everything from the Cotton Club to the Broadway district.
