ASCAP To Honor ‘A Fine Romance’

Lehman’s book tells of ‘Jewish songwriters, American songs’

Print Email

Congratulations to David Lehman, who, we are told, will be given a 2010 Deems Taylor Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers for his Nextbook Press book on Jewish influence over American songtunes, A Fine Romance.

In an email, Lehman reported, “‘I’ve got a feeling you’re fooling,’ I said when the guy from ASCAP called. I was sure he was mouthing little white lies. But True Blue Lou was on the level. My heart stood still, and now I’m sitting on top of the world, which I’ve got on a string.”
