Abstract:

"Over the course of a career now in its fourth decade, Bruce Springsteen has earned one of the most passionate, devoted followings in all rock 'n' roll. He's selling more records and concert tickets in his fifties than he sold in his twenties." "Yet to many fans he remains an enigma.".

"How has Springsteen produced such a consistent body of work and retained his currency while other top rock 'n' rollers have gone by the wayside? Jimmy Guterman has been writing about Springsteen since the 1970s. In Runaway American Dream, he delves deep into dramatic and crucial moments from every phase of Springsteen's career, intepreting the songs and commenting on the man and the culture at large to deliver a nuanced portrait of The Boss from the earliest days right up to Springsteen's 2005 album, Devils & Dust."--BOOK JACKET.
