Product Details


“A small wonder. . . . Where boredom replaces bohemia and real life is only glimpsed in a Springsteen lyric. The result is a genuinely moving rite of passage in which pop music plays an essential and disposable role.” —Mojo

“Wonderful. . . . It was the New Jersey songwriter’s music to which the young Manzoor clung during a childhood in a strict Pakistani Muslim household in the Luton neighborhood of Bury Park. . . . Manzoor leaps clear of cliche by virtue of the story he has to tell, and the insight, compassion, humor and self-awareness with which he tells it.” —The Sunday Times (London)

“Successfully evokes not only a particular time and place, but, more importantly, a pervasive sense of marginality. . . . A very personal narrative of love, separation, loss and guilt.” —The New Statesman
