George Gershwin lived his life with delight and vitality, but with melancholy as well, for he was unable to make a place for himself-no family of his own and no real home in music. He and his siblings received little love from their mother and no direction from their father. The closest George came to domesticity was his longtime affair with fellow composer Kay Swift. But she remained married to another man while he went from woman to woman.

George Gershwin, born in 1898, was one of America's greatest composers. He published his first song when he was eighteen years old. During the next twenty years until his death in 1937 he wrote more than five hundred more songs. He also wrote an opera as well as music for piano and orchestra. Another well – known Gershwin song is An American in Paris. It also became an immediate success. Critics were once again divided over the music. Some called it happy and full of life, to others it was silly and long-winded. Still it remains one of his most popular works. George Gershwin died in 1937; just days after doctors learned he had brain cancer. He was only thirty-nine years old. Newspapers all over the world reported his death on their front pages.
