Summary
For more than fifty years Simon has spoken to us in songs about alienation, doubt, resilience, and empathy; but he is a deeply private person who resisted speaking to us outside of his music. He recently opened up to Hilburn, who has also conducted in-depth interviews with scores of Simon's friends, family, and colleagues. The result is a deeply human account of the challenges and sacrifices of a life in music at the highest level. Hilburn documents Simon's search for artistry and his constant struggle to protect that artistry against distractions that have derailed so many great pop figures. -- adapted from jacket
