Bruce Springsteen has helped turn one of his songs into a book.
Outlaw Pete, written by Bruce and Frank Caruso, is based on his 2009 song of the same name about a bank-robbing baby whose exploits become a meditation on sin, fate and free will. The song, off his Working on a Dream album, was inspired by the children’s book Brave Cowboy Bill, which Bruce’s mother used to read to him as a child. Springsteen says, “Outlaw Peteis essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins.”
It will be published on November 4th.
