BOOK REVIEW

LOU GEHRIG by David A. Adler
BIOGRAPHY
Released: March 1, 1997

"Readers will feel good after reading this biography—and maybe even inspired to start measuring themselves against Gehrig's standard. (Picture book/biography. 5-9)"
The aw-shucks decency of Gehrig drives this picture-book biography from Adler (One Yellow Daffodil, 1995, etc.); what comes through is Gehrig as a genuine rarity, blessed with colossal athletic talent that he carried with dignity and modesty. Read full book review >

"This is a serviceable biography of one of the unsung women of the era, but it's also dull, more of a laundry list of good works than the story of a person's life. (b&w photos, chronology, bibiliography, index) (Biography. 12-14)"
Colbert delivers all the facts in this entry in the Notable Americans series, but the life she chronicles, though admirable, is more about duty than inspiration. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

LOU HARRISON by Leta E. Miller
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: July 1, 1998

That this biographical study of composer, polymath, and activist Lou Harrison began as an oral history explains a lot; its cozy tone betrays long exposure not only to octogenarian Harrison himself, but also the dizzying orbit of progressive artists, musical and otherwise, with whom he has come into contact over a long and diverse career.
