Summary As a teenager, Manzoor tried to reconcile being both British and Muslim. After his best friend introduced him to the music of Bruce Springsteen at age sixteen, he found a lens through which he could view his life.
Two years old when his family emigrated from Pakistan to Britain in 1974, Manzoor spent his teenage years in a constant battle, trying to reconcile being both British and Muslim, trying to fit in at school and at home. When his best friend introduced him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, his life changed completely; Springsteen became Manzoor's personal muse. His memoir is both a tribute to Springsteen and a story of personal discovery, a heartwarming remembrance of how music transcends religion and race. -- adapted from back cover
