Erste autorisierte und einzige deutsche Ausgabe von Springsteens Lyrics Bruce Springsteens Lyrics erscheinen zusammengenommen als Kapitel eines großen amerikanischen Romans, den er in den 1970ern begonnen hat und der in diesem Buch nachvollzogen wird. Kritiker halten den "Chronisten des amerikanischen Alltags" (Der Spiegel) und seine Lyrics inzwischen für ebenso wichtig für die amerikanische Literatur wie die Werke von Fitzgerald, Carver oder Whitman. Anders als Bob Dylan versteckt sich Springsteen nicht hinter immer neuen Masken, er erzählt unverstellt von dem American Dream und seinen Schattenseiten – von der Provinz, von der Flucht aus ihr und dem Sog der Freiheit, von den Chancen der Selbstsuche wie auch von Armut, Rassismus oder Polizeigewalt. Leonardo Colombati entschlüsselt überraschende Hintergründe und Einflüsse. Die Wucht von Springsteens Bildern wie auch die leisen Erschütterungen in seiner Sprache macht Heinz Rudolf Kunze in seinen kongenialen Übersetzungen erfahrbar. Das Buch bietet: • Einleitung, Biographie und Kommentare von Leonardo Colombati • 100 Songs im Original und in deutscher Übersetzung von Heinz Rudolf Kunze • umfangreiches Bonusmaterial, Diskographie u. ä.

Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himselfto writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled 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 candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work. 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, " abd "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.
