Unrequited Infatuations chronicles the twists and turns of Stevie Van Zandt’s always surprising life. It is more than just the testimony of a globe-trotting nomad, more than the story of a groundbreaking activist, more than the odyssey of a spiritual seeker, and more than a master class in rock and roll (not to mention a dozen other crafts).
Stevie Van Zandt says, “I’ve seen enough things that could be useful that justified writing them down and sharing them. As far as my life story? Well I hope this book explains it to me!”
Mary Ann Naples, Publisher of Hachette Books, adds, “Stevie Van Zandt’s story is a singular arc in American culture. From his vantage point as a witness to the renaissance era of rock and roll to consequential activism and a third act in groundbreaking television, Hachette Books is proud to bring Van Zandt’s odyssey to readers.”
The memoir begins in suburban New Jersey before diving into Stevie’s work with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. And then, in the early ‘80s, Van Zandt stepped away from E Street to embark on his own odyssey.
