Greetings from Bury Park Zusammenfassung

Greetings from Bury Park: Race. Religion. Rock 'n' Roll Sarfraz Manzoor

Sarfraz Manzoor was two years old when his family emigrated from Pakistan to join his father in Bury Park, Luton. His teenage years were a constant battle to reconcile being both British and Muslim. But when his best friend introduced him to Bruce Springsteen, his life changed for ever. In this affectionate and timely memoir, Manzoor retraces his journey from the frustrations of his childhood to his reaction to the tragedies of 9/11 and 7/7. Original, darkly tender and wryly amusing, this is an inspiring tribute to the power of music to transcend race and religion and a moving account of a relationship between father and son.

Greetings from Bury Park Bewertungen

'Beautiful and moving ... a book to make you believe that we are all more alike than we know' Tony Parsons 'While the book is about many things - the impact of multi-culturalism, a coming-of-age story and a Nick Hornby-style documentation of musical obsession - it is Manzoor's relationship with his father that lies at its heart' Independent 'Every detail rings so true that you feel you have been offered a seat in his living-room. Suffusing all this is Manzoor's warm, humane, unsensational voice: it makes you want to extend the hand of friendship to him' Sunday Telegraph 'A small wonder - the end result is genuinely moving rites-of-passage in which pop music plays an essential role' Mojo
