Note: 
This is another biography in the Masters of Music Series, which also includes books about Irving Berlin and Leonard Bernstein. Gershwin's life is chronicled within the context of musical life in America. The format is varied and appealing, with reference aides making it suitable for reports. Lacking is not only any exploration of Gershwin's Jewishness on his life and music, but any sense of excitement about so great and ground-breaking a musician. Catherine Reef's biography of Gershwin is preferable.
