|Description||Born to Run, by Bruce Springsteen
â€œA virtuoso performance, the 508-page equivalent to one of Springsteen and the E Street Band's famous four-hour concerts: Nothing is left onstage, and diehard fans and first-timers alike depart for home sated and yet somehow already aching for more.â€ â€”NPR
â€œRichly rewardingâ€¦Bruce Springsteen proves that he has taken on life fully engaged both in living and examining it, and in doing so, heâ€™s delivered a story as profoundly inspiring as his best musicâ€¦Itâ€™s alternately brutally honest, philosophically deep, stabbingly funny, and, perhaps most important, refreshingly humble.â€ â€”Los Angeles Times
In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowlâ€™s halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. Thatâ€™s how this extraordinary autobiography began.
Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs.
He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as â€œThe Big Bangâ€: seeing Elvis Presleyâ€™s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work and shows us why the song â€œBorn to Runâ€ reveals more than we previously realized.
Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock starâ€™s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll.
Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs (â€œThunder Road,â€ â€œBadlands,â€ â€œDarkness on the Edge of Town,â€ â€œThe River,â€ â€œBorn in the U.S.A.,â€ â€œThe Rising,â€ and â€œThe Ghost of Tom Joad,â€ to name just a few), Bruce Springsteenâ€™s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences
