Tears and spice and love affairs thrice-- plus a regal bearing that would have the Queen of England tugging her forelock. Three of these duchess/martyrs--singers Barbara Cook, Julie Wilson, and Rosemary Clooney--are profiled in Deborah Grace Winers The Night and the Music, the most skillful evocation of the cyclic world of New York cabaret since James Gavins Intimate Nights in 1991. As interwoven by the author, the womens life stories are nearly identical: early sex-goddess success in the 1950s- the dark 1960s when audiences evaporated and led to personal treks through hell- the 1980s spring of rediscovery, rebirth, and ascension into divadom. Winer brings to life a world of thick carpets, clinking glasses, gleaming pinkie rings, and private demons harnessed for art.
