Summary
Through such hits as 'The Sound of Silence', 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', 'Still Crazy After All These Years', and 'Graceland', Paul Simon has spoken to us in songs for a half-century about alienation, doubt, survival, and faith in ways that have established him as one of the most honoured and beloved songwriters in American pop music history. Yet Simon has refused to talk to potential biographers and urged those close to him to also remain silent. But Simon not only agreed to talk to biographer Robert Hilburn for what has amounted to more than 60 hours, he also encouraged his family and friends to sit down for in-depth interviews. 'Paul Simon' is a revealing account of the challenges and sacrifices of artistry at the highest level. He has also lived a roller-coaster life of extreme ups and downs
