Paul Simon has spoken to and for an entire generation. His exquisite blend of lyrics and rhythmic virtuosity has established him as one of the most enduring, inventive, and successful rock superstars. From the early mega-hit "The Sounds Of Silence" with his then partner Art Garfunkel, to the controversial and powerful "Graceland" album of 1987, Paul Simon's music has been a bold, primary force in the fabric of America's cultural identity for 35 years. This book charts the evolution of this extraordinary talent as it follows a career that neatly parallels the history of rock and roll. Insiteful.
