  1. Oscar Levant? Have you read any of his own writings? ‘Smattering of ignorance’ He is an interesting character, great insight into American popular music and the life of George Gershwin.

  2. I love Oscar Levant and have read “Smattering” and also “Memoirs of an Amnesiac” too, which was good. I love his dry, dark humor and he was so talented and interesting. The bio on him is terrific, if you haven’t read it yet ~ I highly recommend it.
