Unprecedented in storytelling and vivid detail, this biography reveals the heart and soul of one of the world’s most iconic superstars. A journey of love and loss, art and faith, and the salvation found in both–this is the story of Bono.
Extensively researched and written in compelling prose that unfolds like a novel, this unique and intimate look at Bono’s life tells of the critical moments in his journey–how the death of his mother at age fourteen sent him on a search that led him from the anarchy of his youth to joining a band, to forming a career as a true artist and the front man for one of the most popular bands in the world. That quest led him further on to working as an activist for the poor and needy and becoming an ambassador of love and faith in the world. Bridging all these moments together is an incredible faith that has characterized Bono’s life in fiercely creative and unconventional ways.
With revealing quotes from the man himself about family, faith, heartbreak, and art, this is a must-read for anyone who’s found themselves singing along with Bono. Drawing on hundreds of interviews Bono has given over his decades-long career, this book composes an intricate portrait showing the personal and spiritual becoming of a legend.
Authentic and gritty, Bono’s story resonates with the daily fears we all have to overcome and our universal search for love.
