Book - 1999
Rate this:
An internationally respected composer and performer, Suzanne Vega does not write love songs, per se. Her words can rattle and sting, exposing private crimes and inner wars, the pain of need, and the chains of unspoken law. With evocative image and clear-sighted truth she transforms experience into dark and beautiful art. She is a poet of the urban streets whose passionate eye catches the motion and vibrant color of the life that surrounds us all.In this volume are collected the writings of Suzanne Vega: poems and stories: remembrances of times past and far countries: interviews and song lyrics: overheard conversations and imagined thoughts: complex inner worlds realized in simple yet breathtaking strokes. And through her words a portrait emerges of an exemplary artist and unique individual whose passion embraces the entire scope of human existence, from love and longing to war and politics. It is a window into a guarded life, and a remarkable journey across an emotional landscape sometimes hard, often cruel, but never barren or devoid of hope.
