This sweeping biography of Bruce Springsteen features in-depth interviews with family, band members, childhood friends, ex-girlfriends, and a poignant retrospective from the Boss himself. It’s Bruce as his many fans haven’t before seen him - the man behind the myth, describing his life and work in intimate, vivid detail. For close to four decades, Bruce Springsteen has reflected the heart and soul of America in a career that encompasses twenty Grammy Awards, more than 120 million albums sold, two Golden Globes, and an Academy Award. Yet despite the honesty of his songwriting, Springsteen has remained adamantly elusive and reserved. In a groundbreaking biography that draws on unprecedented access to Springsteen and those closest to him, acclaimed music critic Peter Ames Carlin presents the most revealing account yet of New Jersey’s favorite son. With contributions from band members past and present, including the last interview given by legendary saxophonist Clarence Clemons, Bruce encompasses the breadth of Springsteen’s astonishing career and explores the inner workings of an American icon right up through his most recent sold-out tour and number-one album, Wrecking Ball. A must for fans, Bruce is a meticulously researched biography of one of the most complex and fascinating artists in American music. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bobby Cannavale.

Bruce Forsyth is known across four generations as the ´´face´´ of family entertainment classics such as The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, and The Price is Right. His is an amazing story that spans more than two-thirds of the 20th century.

But it had been a long slog since his debut as 14-year-old ´´Boy Bruce the Mighty Atom´´ in 1942, then wartime work for the Red Cross and National Service after, and playing every theatre, concert party, summer season, double act, and review known to man. He´s been at the very top ever since. Bruce´s first-ever account of his whole life is chock full of anecdotes, honest appraisals of tough times, failed marriages and affairs, comments on entertainment today, and what it takes to be a comedian at the height of his powers. 1.

Bruce Springsteen grew up in a blue-collar New Jersey town where his parents struggled to make ends meet. Bruce didn´t fit in at school but found solace in rock and roll and playing guitar. After the breakup of a local band he´d joined, Springsteen went out on his own, and people began to take notice. He signed with Columbia Records and, under pressure to come up with a hit, wrote ´´Born in the USA´´, which tells the story of America during the years of the Vietnam War.

Superman rose from popular culture - comic books, newspaper strips, radio, television, novels, and movies - but people have so embraced the character that he has now become part of folklore. This transition from popular to folk culture signals the importance of Superman to fans and to a larger American populace. Superman´s story has become a myth dramatizing identity, morality, and politics. Many studies have examined the ways in which folklore has provided inspiration for other forms of culture, especially literature and cinema. In Superman in Myth and Folklore, Daniel Peretti explores the meaning of folklore inspired by popular culture, focusing not on the Man of Steel´s origins but on the culture he has helped create. Superman provides a way to approach fundamental questions of human nature, a means of exploring humanity´s relationship with divinity, an exemplar for debate about the type of hero society needs, and an articulation of the tension between the individual and the community. Through examinations of tattoos, humor, costuming, and festivals, Peretti portrays Superman as a corporate-owned intellectual property and a model for behavior, a means for expression and performance of individual identity, and the focal point for disparate members of fan communities. As fans apply Superman stories to their lives, they elevate him to a mythical status. Peretti focuses on the way these fans have internalized various aspects of the character. In doing so, he delves into the meaning of Superman and his place in American culture and demonstrates the character´s staying power. The book is published by University Press of Mississippi. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Carrico. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/130403/bk_acx0_130403_sample.mp3.
