I’m a huge fan of U2. I saw them six times last summer. My boyfriend’s like ‘We get it, they’re almost 60, relax.’ The band gives an oral history of their entire career like they’ve never done before. I’m always intrigued by books in which people retrace their steps — this thing didn’t work out and this thing didn’t work out, then this thing sorta did, then we lost our momentum… but it really was cool to see their creative process from before they started as a band in high school. Hopefully I can do even one tenth of the things they do to inspire people. It’s long, so you’ll have to buckle up for a bit. But it’s definitely worth it.
