From America's cultural gatekeeper comes a profile of the man who defines the nation's soul. David Remnick, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and editor of 'The New Yorker', applies his unique journalistic voice to paint a portrait of rock legend and working-class poet Bruce Springsteen. The result is what 'Rolling Stone' called 'one of the most thorough profiles of Springsteen ever published'.Remnick shadows Springsteen from his recent Wrecking Ball world tour, the whole way back to the beginning, back to Asbury Park, to childhood rock'n'roll fantasies. Details of Springsteen's strained relationship with his father, his battle with mental illness, his marriage, and the joys and anguish of friendships forged and lost with ephemeral E Street Band members, are all delicately woven through a career that spans over four decades as America's working-class hero.We Are Alive not only tells the story of a living legend, but also produces an insight into the heart of America, the drive of self-transformation and renewal. Remnick has created an important text on the history of music.'One of the most thorough profiles of Springsteen ever published.' Rolling Stone
