Rumours of Glory: A Memoir by Bruce CockburnFollowing the success of Im Your Man and Just Kids, legendary Canadian singer and songwriter Bruce Cockburn delivers his long-awaited memoir-a chronicle of faith, fear and activism that is also a lively cultural and musical tour through the late 20th century.
Cockburns life has been shaped by politics, protest, romance and spiritual discovery. For more than five decades he has toured the globe, visiting such far-flung places as Guatemala, Mali, Mozambique, Afghanistan and Nepal, performing and speaking out on diverse issues, from native rights and land mines to the environment and Third World debt. His journeys have been reflected in his music and evolving styles: folk, jazz, blues, rock and worldbeat. Drawing on his experiences, he continues to create memorable songs about his ever-expanding universe of wonders.
As an artist with thirty-one albums, Cockburn has won numerous awards and the devotion of legions of fans across America and his native Canada, where he is a household name. Yet the man himself has remained a mystery. In his memoir, Cockburn invites us into his private world, sharing his Christian convictions, his personal relationships, and the social and political activism that has defined him and has both invigorated and incited his fans.
