This chapter focuses on the changes in Dorothy's life and career in the late 1930s. In 1938, Dorothy Fields returned to New York. With this move, she was not only changing place of residence and career orientation; she was also changing her marital status. On July 14, 1938, one day before her thirty-fourth birthday, Dorothy Fields married Eli Lahm. From a position of greater independence and greater sense of self, she was able to begin a new stage of her life, one that would play out on Broadway and bring forth some of her most enduring successes.
