Review

"Long Walk Home: Reflections on Bruce Springsteen did something I wouldn't have thought possible: it deepened my appreciation for the artist by broadening my understanding of his relevance and influence. I'd long known that Bruce had wide, diverse, international appeal. Now I have a better understanding of why. Highly recommended."-- "E Street Shuffle"

"Rutgers Professor Reflects on Springsteen's Legacy for ''The Boss's' 70th Birthday," by Cynthia Medina

"Long Walk Home endeavors to examine the impact the art and the artist have had on individual people around the world. The book fulfills this mission admirably. Individual contributions are of uniformly high quality. The collection as a whole is an engaging read that will interest scholars and fans alike."

--Prudence Jones "BOSS: The Biannual Online-Journal of Springsteen Studies"

"In a collection as carefully compiled as a Springsteen album, Cohen and Booklist contributor Sawyers celebrate the Boss at 70....For more than four decades, Springsteen's music has been part of our popular music and culture and will continue to be, long after his final album is released. As this compilation illustrates, his 'Glory Days' are far from over."-- "Booklist"

"The book nods to Springsteen's international, intercultural popularity and success....The most thought-provoking essays in Long Walk Home are by writers who are not from the stereotypical Springsteen fan base."-- "Times Literary Supplement"

"The expanding field of Springsteen Studies is fascinating, and includes stellar volumes written by many of the contributors to this collection. Kudos to co-editors Jonathan D. Cohen (managing editor of "'BOSS: The Biannual Online-Journal of Springsteen Studies') and June Skinner Sawyers (editor of "Racing in the Streets: The Bruce Springsteen Reader") for giving Springsteen fans an extraordinary new addition to that canon. Long Walk Home is worthy of its subject and a timely reminder of Springsteen's promise in the 1999 anthem 'Land of Hope and Dreams' that 'dreams will not be thwarted/ faith will be rewarded.'"-- "Charleston Post & Courier"

Review

It is not surprising, then, that the most thought-provoking essays in Long Walk Home are by writers who are not from the stereotypical Springsteen fan base." —Times Literary Supplement

"Long Walk Home: Reflections on Bruce Springsteen at 70 offers a comprehensive, timely overview of Springsteen’s life and work. The eminently qualified essayists in Sawyers and Cohen’s anthology astutely address Springsteen’s achievement in terms of the artist’s evolving legacy, with a valuable accent upon exploring his lasting contributions to twentieth- and twenty-first- century popular music and culture.” —Kenneth Womack, author of Long and Winding Roads: The Evolving Artistry of the Beatles

"A killer collection of Boss studies and stories, as varied as Springsteen's own body of work and a fitting tribute to the man at 70, both an American legend and an artist as vital as ever." —Christopher Phillips, Editor of Backstreets.com
