What have I been doing since BRUCE came out in 2012? The cover is just to the left.

Much more about this to come, but for now here are a few words from Kirkus Reviews:

“[A] nuanced, fascinating portrait…Carlin expertly tracks Simon’s professional career, from the earliest days with Garfunkel when they were finding their footing as performers, through the climax of their career as a band with their 1970 album ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water,’ to Simon’s solo artistic peak with the 1986 release of ‘Graceland.’ Simon’s music career defies easy categorization—much as his relationship with Garfunkel does—but in Carlin’s portrayal, his legacy as an innovative songwriter and musician is undeniable. An absorbing and layered study of ‘one of the most influential voices in Western popular culture.’”
