5.0 out of 5 stars Wrestling Eric Alterman for #2 Spot of Best Bruce Books--#1 Of Course, is Bruce's Own "Songs", April 2, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Working on a Dream: The Progressive Political Vision of Bruce Springsteen (Paperback)
I don't think there's a Bruce book that's ever been published that I haven't read, and this one is nothing short of spectacular. I don't want to cast aspersions on reviewers, but I can't help but think that the person who really disliked the book is one who can't help but love Bruce, even if he loathes his politics and pretends that he only writes about girls and cars.

This author really GETS IT; that Bruce's writing has been informed from the very beginning by lives that are lived in the margins, by people who are cast away and considered dispensable.

I wish Bruce would have blurbed the book--I think this represents what he thinks as much as anything I've ever read. Every day I thank Bruce for his part in speaking for those whose voices are not heard; now I need to thank this brilliant author as well.

Sometimes I wonder when I read a review so positive if I'm really the author's mother, or cousin, or whatever. For the record, never met him, though I'd love to sit down and have a beer and talk Bruce with him someday. Bravo!!
