Steely Dan keyboardist, front man, and co-founder Donald Fagen is not your typical self-promoting rocker. Thus, it is no surprise that his autobiography is not a chest-thumping reprise of triumphant tours and sexual conquests. Instead, it records the coming-of-age of a young Jersey guy, which he credits to an odd assortment of influences, including but not limited to Ray Charles, Tina Turner, Philip K. Dick, Blake Edwards, Jack Kerouac, Harry Mancini, Jean Shepherd, and the Boswell Sisters. Sometimes quoting from his own early journals, Fagen recaptures the excitement of youth with a candor all its own. Editor's recommendation.
