Almost four years ago, I put up a post called Ira Gershwin's dog. It was very short on detail and I've never managed to get very far in embellishing it. Last Sunday, however, I was browsing the stalls at Jewish Book Week, when I can across a very fat biography of George Gershwin. I flipped through it, hoping for a few scraps of info about family pets – bupkes.
Nevertheless, I did discover that at some point in his youth, George Gershwin was kicked on the bridge of his nose by a horse. I just thought you'd like to know. (I doubt it was his horse.)
