Nobodys Fool: The Lives of Danny Kaye by Martin Gottfried

It is the facinating story of an energetic, athletic, curious, perhaps overly mothered kid from Brooklyn who became an utterly original star parlaying his multiple talents into a career as one of the most popular and adored entertainers in American history. With his songwriting wife and mentor, Sylvia Fine, he formed a unique and perhaps perverse team, and the two of them created a Danny Kaye who enchanted an entire country. He combined the joy and ingenuousness of a child with the knowing wink of sophisticated entertainer. But while he was fostering this image and developing into one of the greatest of stars, and even an international humanitarian, was Danny Kaye concealing very different life - a secret life of his own? In Nobodys Fool, Gottfried passes through the veil of secrecy and beyond the elegant image of Kaye that was so brilliantly nurtured and protected during his lifetime.

Danny Kaye was magic. He could make you feel anything is possible. He was a true artist, he was poetry in motion. I also miss him per cent, although I never met him. I think of hom when I'm gloomy and he unfailingly cheers me up.
