Jamie Bernstein: "It was a rough year..."

Leonard Bernstein Thomas R. Seiler/Deutsche Grammophon
2min : Jamie Bernstein difficult year

In so many ways, Leonard Bernstein was extraordinary. Talented, charismatic and handsome to boot, it was if a magic wand tapped his head at birth. His daughter Jamie Bernstein in her new book Famous Father Girl describes what the public didn't see: the doubt and guilt that nagged his conscience AND fueled his music.
