The Boss is promising to "show the reader his mind"...
On the same day that he sold-out two Croke Park shows, it's been announced that Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run autobiography will be published on September 27 by Simon & Schuster.
"Springsteen has been privately writing the autobiography over the past seven years," the publishers reveal. "He began work in 2009, after performing with the E Street Band at the Super Bowl’s halftime show.
"In Born to Run, Mr. Springsteen describes growing up in Freehold, New Jersey amid the 'poetry, danger, and darkness' that fuelled his imagination. 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 realised."
Comments Bruce: “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.”
“This is the book we’ve been hoping for,” enthuses Jonathan Karp, publisher of Simon & Schuster. “Readers will see their own lives in Bruce Springsteen’s extraordinary story, just as we recognise ourselves in his songs.”
