About this book
Subtitled, "Race. Religion. Rock 'N' Roll." A charming and poignant memoir of growing up during the 1980s in Bury Park, Luton, as both a Muslim and a Bruce Springsteen fan. Original, tender and amusing, it's a tribute to the power of music to transcend race and religion.
Sarfraz Manzoor was 2 years old when his family emigrated from Pakistan. His teenage years were a battle to reconcile being both British and Muslim. But when his friend introduced him to Bruce Springsteen, his life changed. This memoir retraces his journey from the frustrations of his childhood to his reaction to the tragedies of 9/11 and 7/7.
