'Writing about yourself is a funny business...But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I've tried to do this.' -Bruce Springsteen, from the pages of Born to Run In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl's halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. That's how this extraordinary autobiography began. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger and darkness that fuelled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as 'The Big Bang': seeing Elvis Presley'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 candour, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song 'Born to Run' 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 star'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 ('Thunder Road', 'Badlands', 'Darkness on the Edge of Town', 'The River', 'Born in the U.S.A.', 'The Rising', and 'The Ghost of Tom Joad', to name just a few), 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.

Tot va comencar el 2009, en concloure l'actuacio de Bruce Springsteen i la E Street Band a la mitja part de la Super Bowl. Va ser tan estimulant que en Bruce es va decidir a escriure sobre el que havia experimentat i aixi, sense saber ben be que en sortiria de tot plegat i amb forca discrecio, posa fil a l'agulla i va anar filant-se aquesta monumental autobiografia. Ens descriu com va ser la seva infantesa a Freehold, Nova Jersey; una colpidora barreja de foscor, perill i poesia que va anar conformant l'imaginari de les seves cancons, tot conduint-nos al moment que ell defineix com el seu "e;Big Bang"e; particular: la primera vegada que va veure l'Elvis Presley al programa televisiu d'Ed Sullivan. Tambe, amb sinceritat i humor, ens relata la seva lluita per convertir-se en music, els seus inicis com a lider d'una banda, la formacio de la E Street Band i tot el que s'amaga darrera la canco "e;Born to Run"e;, el seu himne personal. Aquest ser un llibre revelador per a tothom que conegui i gaudeixi d'en Bruce Springsteen; per s molt ms que unes memries d'una rock star llegendria. s un llibre per a treballadors i somiadors, per a pares i fills, per a amants i solitaris, per a artistes, monstres i per a qualsevol persona que encara no hagi descobert el riu sagrat del Rock & Roll, escrit amb el lirisme d'un compositor singular i la saviesa d'un home que ha reflexionat sobre les seves experincies.

Outlaw Pete

Outlaw Pete

Author: Bruce Springsteen Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/11/2014

The first ever book by Bruce Springsteen, one of the biggest artists of this generation - published as a picture book for adults. When Bruce was a little boy, he learned the story of Brave Cowboy Bill,about a pure-hearted little cowboy. It was the first of Bruce's Western loves, which now range from John Ford films to Mexican music to Native American art. Each of these inspirations, plus what he learned as a man and a rock 'n' roller about how to combine whimsy and wisdom, were stations on the way to Outlaw Pete, a modern legend of a criminal who starts out in nappies and confronts the roughest edges of adulthood. It is one of the most ambitious and original story songs Springsteen has ever written - rhapsodic and harsh, a meditation on destiny, filled with absurdities but not for one second of its eight minutes exactly a joke. The book is beautifully illustrated by Frank Caruso. His approach, immaculately detailed, simple when it needs to be, parallels Springsteen's blend of absurdity and meditation. Reading and listening have rarely so superbly complemented each other. The result becomes the most intense kind of artistic collaboration, a vision shared.
