Zach Schisgal, at Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone/Fireside imprint, nabbed North American rights to a Bruce Springsteen bio by rock biographer Peter Ames Carlin, who’s written about such heavies as Paul McCartney (Paul McCartney: A Life) and Brian Wilson (Catch a Wave). Simon Lipskar at Writers House brokered the deal and the book, per S&S, will trace Springsteen’s life from his working-class roots in Freehold, N.J., through his life as a superstar and cultural icon.
