Book Description
Ervin Nyiregyhazi (1903-1987) was one of the most remarkable piano prodigies in history. Lost Genius takes the reader on a journey through his strange, eccentric, sometimes sad life, from his astounding childhood performances in Europe to his hubristic arrival in America, and from his dissolute years on Los Angles`s Skid Row to his sensational, bizarre comeback in his seventies. Along the way, Nyiregyhazi`s story is peopled with a cast of colorful characters, including his domineering mother, ten wives, and unscrupulous managers, as well as those he counted among his friends and champions, like Rudolph Valentino, Harry Houdini, Bela Lugosi, Ayn Rand, Theodore Dreiser, and Gloria Swanson.
