The 2017 paperback edition of Bruce Springsteen's bestselling memoir, originally released in hardcover in 2016. "Both an entertaining account of Springsteen's marathon race to the top and a reminder that the one thing you can't run away from is yourself" (Entertainment Weekly), Born to Run is much more than a legendary rock star's memoir. This book is a "a 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" (NPR).
Rolling Stone calls Born to Run "an utterly unique, endlessly exhilarating, last-chance-power-drive of a memoir." Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like so many of his songs, Bruce Springsteen's autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.

Order from Backstreets for a chance at an autographed bookplate!
Thanks to Simon & Schuster, we've got some serious "golden tickets" we'll be slipping into Born to Run softcovers as a bonus as we ship them out. We have 20 bookplates signed by Bruce Springsteen specifically for Born to Run to give away. These are hand-signed, of course, and the same bookplates they used for the hardcover; adhesive backing is still on, so lucky recipients can choose whether to affix it here or on a hardcover edition.
Order before Friday, September 15, at noon Eastern for a chance at one of these 20 bookplates. We'll be inserting them into packages completely at random (using a random number generator) as we begin fulfilling orders. Your odds depend on how many orders we receive for the softcover before the 9/15 deadline -- if 40 people order, you've got a 50/50 shot; if 400 people order, it's a five percent chance -- but that's a healthy number of autographs to give away no matter how you slice it. Order the Born to Run softcover now: 20 golden tickets await!
