Book Description Norton. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Book Condition: New. Smart and incisive, this book from English, American studies, and film professor Marc Dolan takes us through Bruce Springsteen's life by tracing the cultural, political, and personal forces that shaped his music. Dolan draws on wide-ranging sources—including hundreds of unreleased studio recordings and bootlegs of live performances—to illuminate how Springsteen developed over the decades from expressing himself as a guy from working-class New Jersey to writing about the larger issues facing the country, including war, class disparity, and prejudice. The result is an indispensable reference for avid Springsteen fans as well as for anyone interested in learning the stories behind his music. "[The book] endeavors to get to the heart of its subject by viewing him through the economic, social, political, religious and family turmoil that formed a musician who found out early on how to make his guitar talk but spent painful decades refining what he needed to make it say. Springsteen's creative evolution and endurance as a populist American rock 'n' roll hero is, according to Dolan, 'a slantwise way of telling the history of our times, how we have come together and divided over the last half-century, how we have changed what we think of ourselves as a people'."—NYTBR 512.
