  • Jeff Crosby
    I'm perhaps the rare music listener who HAS bought every solo record Art Garfunkel has ever made while, on the other hand, I have NOT done so with his more famous on-and-off-again collaborator, Paul Simon. Thus, I approached this book (as I did his earlier collection of poetry, "Still Water: Prose P...

    The typeface in the print book—all the way through—is a digitized version of the author's handwriting, which seems like a neat idea but was actually distracting almost the whole time. That, plus the lack of narrative structure, made this one kind of a beast to get through on a cover-to-cov...

    not your typical artist memoir but still enjoyed it. (I like the traditional rags to riches/hard work pays off type of success stories. )...

    Simon and Garfunkel will always be my favorite duo, listening to them soothes my worries. I wish I had the pleasure of hearing them growing up, but I discovered them later in life, but regardless I still remember hearing 'Sounds of Silence' it always brings back so much nostalgia. In fact all of the...
