THE TROUBLE WITH CINDERELLA: An Outline of Identity
1992·Santa Barbara, California
by Shaw, Artie
Santa Barbara, California: Fithian Press, 1992. Trade paperback. Fine. Textual photographs. Santa Barbara, California: Fithian Press in association with Artixo Books, 1992. Reprint. This long, romantic and thoughtful autobiography is regarded as one of the most substantial self-portraits produced by a jazz musician. Along with Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw (born Arthur Jacob Arshawsky, 1910-2004) was the leading clarinetist of the swing era, and a prominent bandleader as well. Gifted with a range of sometimes contradictory talents Shaw led a complicated, frequently contentious life (he abandoned performing for a long time), and his earlier years were littered with a number of famous wives, including Lana Turner and Evelyn Keyes. Inscribed by Shaw on the title page. Original paper wrappers. A fine copy.
