Summary
To have been alive during the last six decades is to have lived with the music of Paul Simon. As half of Simon & Garfunkel, his songs helped define the '60s. Twenty years later, Simon's album "Graceland" spurred an international political controversy. A life story with the scope of an epic novel, Carlin's Homeward Bound is the first major biography of one of the most influential popular artists in American history
