A native of Syracuse, Chuck Harris earned a Ph.D. in Sociology from Duke University. He is the son and nephew of musicians who worked in 1920's Manhattan. He and his wife live in Northern Virginia. He is the father of two and the grandfather of five boys.

The brothers' journey takes them from elegant ballrooms to Harlem speakeasies, and from ocean liners to rehearsal halls and broadcast studios. Along the way, Morey loses a love and Charley embarks on a passionate affair with a stunning fashion model.
The unlikely lynchpin of all this turmoil and glory is a Chinese restaurant on the City's upper west side where key events in their lives are mourned or celebrated with the support of the kindly owner and his family. Then tragedy strikes...
