From the Ziegfeld girl to the radio dame, torch singers (Helen Morgan, Libby Holman, etc.) have reveled in heartbreak. Andrea not only traces their history but also adds a delicious sense of fun to the proceedings with backstage stories of intrigue and inspiration. It's a tale of longing, losing, and gunplay! Highlights: "Someone to Watch Over Me," "Love Me or Leave Me," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Body and Soul," and "Shakin' the Blues Away."
