White Christmas: The Story of an American Song
Jody Rosen (au)
This book about the world’s best-loved popular song, “White Christmas,” provides both the story behind the making of Irving Berlin’s most memorable tune & a rich cultural history of the America that embraced it. Berlin first conceived the song as a ‘throwaway’ -- a satirical novelty number for a vaudeville-style stage revue. By the time Bing Crosby introduced the song to the world in the winter of 1942, it was a Yuletide ballad that would become the world’s all-time top-selling & most frequently recorded song. Here is the story of the song’s making amid the vibrant world of mid-century Broadway & Hollywood & chronicles the song’s legacy today, when Berlin’s masterpiece endures as a secular hymn.
