Book: Runaway American Dream – Listening to Bruce Springsteen
|Quantity in Basket:none|
Shipping Weight: 1.40 pounds
A series of new, original, and provocative essays on the music, myth, and meaning of The Boss, by Jimmy Guterman. Over the course of a career now in its fourth decade, Bruce Springsteen has earned one of the passionate, devoted followings in all rock 'n' roll. He's selling more records and concert tickets in his 50s than he did in his 20s. Yet to many fans he remains an enigma.
How has Springsteen produced such a consistent body of work and retained his currency while other top rock ‘n’ rollers have gone by the wayside? Guterman, an accessible and entertaining music writer, has been writing about Springsteen since the 1970s. In this book, he delves deep into dramatic and crucial moments from every phase of Springsteen's career, interpreting the songs and incisively commenting on the man and the culture at large to deliver a nuanced portrait of The Boss from the earliest days right up to 2005’s Devils & Dust.
