  • What the critics say

    'Memoirs usually rearrange events to suit the author and downplay their shortcomings. Springsteen doesn't spare himself.' Sunday Times Magazine 'By the standards of most rock star autobiographies, Born to Run  is neither sensational nor self-serving… Springsteen has delivered his story with quiet dignity. Give thanks that we can't get rid of him.'
      Guardian 'I can't think of a more honest or revealing memoir by any rock musician: in comparison, it makes the efforts of Patti Smith, Keith Richards and Bob Dylan seem strangely commonplace.' Mail On Sunday 'Astonishing.' Vanity Fair 'An utterly unique, endlessly exhilarating, last-chance-power-drive of a memoir.'   Rolling Stone 'Frank and gripping.' Atlantic 'Intensely satisfying...Born to Run is, like his finest songs, closely observed from end to end. His story is intimate and personal, but he has an interest in other people and a gift for sizing them up...' New York Times 'Springsteen can write-not just life--imprinting song lyrics but good, solid prose that travels all the way to the right margic...And like a fabled Springsteen concert-always notable for its deck-clearing thoroughness -Born to Run achieves the sensation that all the relevant questions have been answered by the time the lights are turned out. He delivers the story of Bruce-in digestibly short chapters-via an informally steadfast Jersey plainspeak that's worked and deftly detailed and intimate with its readers-cleareyed enough to say what it means when it has hard stories to tell, yet supple enough to rise to occasions requiring eloquence-sometimes rather pleasingly subsiding into the syntax and rhythms of a Bruce Springsteen song.' New York Times Book Review 'There's a great book inside this book, and it isn't hiding. It's there to be read and it's wonderful.'  Irish Times - Roddy Doyle 'For the Springsteen fan, this book is the definitive commentary on every note he has played. For the rest of us, it is a road trip into the American soul.' The Times '… a heartfelt memoir… there is a fearlessness to his prose, a willingness to engage with his past, that chimes with his songwriter's desire to give voice to the people around him.' Sunday Times 'The musician's memoir is as generous and open as his marathon live shows… Rock's premier action hero has written a brave and engrossing memoir.' Financial Times '[He] pulls us into his life with the panache of a thriller writer… Springsteen writes humbly, personally, as though he and the reader are the last two people in the bar and neither are ready to put the cork back in the whiskey just yet. His writing, like his music, is a simple pleasure' Independent 'The origin of poetry, thought William Wordsworth, was emotion recollected in tranquillity. That motto describes both Mr Springsteen's memoir and the appeal of his songs' Economist 'The best stories happen to those who are best equipped to tell them… Born to Run is the most accomplished of the recent cavalcade of autobiographies by retirement-age rockstars… he has the storyteller's knack for turning experience into narrative' New Statesman
