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

by Sarfraz Manzoor
£12.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2008)

Greetings from Bury Park: Race. Religion. Rock A charming and poignant memoir of growing up during the eighties as both a Pakistani Muslim and Bruce Springsteen fan.
 
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
