Overview

Released just 24 hours before the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination in April 1968 and inseparable from the tumultuous events of that time, Bookends is essential Simon and Garfunkel, featuring "A Hazy Shade of Winter" and the finished version of "Mrs. Robinson," the classic #1 hit that had its beginnings on the soundtrack of the milestone motion picture The Graduate.

Writing from on-hand experience and exclusive interviews with the duo, Pete Fornatale reveals never-before-disclosed details of the love-hate relationship between the two musicians and offers a unique perspective on each of them. Bookends captured the duo at the peak of their personal, professional, and artistic partnership in the '60s. The dark clouds and troubled waters that broke them up were still a year and a half away.

If your a fan of Simon and Garfunkel or you lived through the decade of the sixties, you will enjoy this book very much. There are many inside stories about the making of the album and really how the phenomenon of Simon and Garfunkel was launched. Pete Fornatale is a voice from my college years and he brings back great memories from a time that seems like ages ago 'or was it just yesterday'. I only gave it 4 stars because I wanted more.
