RaveThe New York Review of BooksAnyone who has been to a Bruce Springsteen concert will immediately recognize the tone he brings to his autobiography, Born to Run. It’s the voice of his onstage storytelling: hearty, comic, forthright, earthy, sometimes poetic, and grounded in the everyday yet somehow larger than life ... Beyond an occasional trivial detail, Springsteen doesn’t contradict his biographers. His book traces the same well-documented career, recognizing the same crossroads. Yet Springsteen also depicts what his biographers can’t: textures, images, psychological states, and what happens between the cycles of recording and touring ... As in his songs, Springsteen’s earnestness and his overworked conscience are never far from the surface of Born to Run. But it’s the rocker in him—the noisy, rambunctious, over-the-top trouper—whose voice gives life to his words.
