The Boss has a book deal.
Simon & Schuster announced Thursday that Bruce Springsteen has spent the past several years working on a memoir, which will come out Sept. 27, four days after Springsteen turns 67.
The title, of course, is “Born to Run.” Financial terms were not disclosed, although his deal is almost certainly worth millions.
“Writing about yourself is a funny business,” Springsteen said in a statement that will appear in his book. “But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.”
According to Simon & Schuster, Springsteen will tell his story with “disarming candor” as he remembers his childhood in New Jersey, his rise to superstardom and “the personal struggles” that inspired such classics as “Born to Run” and Thunder Road.”
