It Aint No Sin To Be Glad Youre Alive: The Promise of Bruce Springsteen by Eric Alterman

This highly praised celebration of Springsteens artistry & influence is the most perceptive portrait yet of the remarkably gifted musician who, since the media anointed him the future of rock n roll in the mid-1970s, has redefined the image of the rock star & emerged an authentic American hero -- a man to whom millions of loyal fans look as a voice for their yearnings, hopes, fears, & dreams. Part biography, part lyrical deconstruction, & part fan letter, Altermans book locates the singer-songwriters strength in his ability to connect the small struggles of the common man with the broad political & social forces that engulf us, & to do so with a human touch. --Time. It Aint No Sin to be Glad Youre Alive celebrates Springsteens enduring legacy & reaffirms his position as a recording artist & performer who personifies America in the same way that Woody Guthrie, Walt Whitman, John Steinbeck, & Bob Dylan have in their work. --Cleveland Plain Dealer. Fascinating, well researched, & serious: three qualities not often found together in biographies of musicians. It Aint No Sin to be Glad Youre Alive ranks with Peter Guralnicks work & is an essential document in evaluating Springsteens legacy. --Rosanne Cash.
