Magic in the Night

Published in the UK on June 25th, by Souvenir Press, Magic in the Night – The Words and Music of Bruce Springsteen, by Rob Kirkpatrick, is a complete discussion of Springsteen’s career from Greetings from Asbury Park to 2009’s Working on a Dream. In this book Kirkpatrick describes how Springsteen’s music and own intellectual life has developed; how a man steeped in popular culture became the political conscience of a nation, how his studies in literature, photography and history led to albums with such a resonant vision as Nebraska and The Rising.

Rob Kirkpatrick reveals Springsteen’s evolution, exploring the cultural, biographical and musical influences on each album’s songs (and many unreleased songs) in chronological order. The book offers a detailed and competing analysis of Springsteen’s art, life and the changes America have gone through during his life.
