Peter Ames Carlin launches this month a new biography about Bruce Springsteen. It is called BRUCE. For so many decades, Bruce Springsteen represented the voice of America, it’s soul and it’s energy.


This is a stunning biography of Bruce Springsteen describing his life and work in vivid intimate detail. After 3 decades of groundbreaking music Bruce Springsteen still manages to amaze audiences around the world with his live shows and bring new fans to his music with every album release.

Highly acclaimed music critic Peter Carlin tracks the Boss’ dazzling ascent to fame, whilst painting a vivid portrait of the real Springsteen: an insistently private man who nevertheless would do anything for his fans.

Recently, in response to his mother’s failing health, Springsteen decided he wanted to tell his story, and that he wanted Carlin to tell it. He gave Carlin many hours of interview time, including a trip to his family home, and let him preview his unreleased album. With unprecedented access to Springsteen, his family, friends and management, Carlin presents a riveting and highly personal account of Springsteen’s life.

Why should you buy this biography rather than the other existing 20 ones? Well perhaps because it is the first time in 25 years that Bruce Springsteen himself collaborates with the book author and brings a more intimate and personal vision of things. Yes, this is a good reason.

The other reason is because Peter Carlin is really good on super star singers biographies. We all remember the one he wrote about the Beach Boys or the one about Paul McCartney… genius.

In every good library.
