Stevie Van Zandt is set to publish his memoir, “Unrequited Infatuations,” via Hachette on September 28.
According to Hachette, the memoir “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).”
The book will also discuss Van Zandt’s work as an activist, particularly surrounding South African apartheid and the 1985 album Sun City, which featured several artists, including Ringo Starr, Peter Gabriel, Gil Scott-Heron, Miles Davis, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Bono, Keith Richards, Miles Davis, and Herbie Hancock.
“I’ve seen enough things that could be useful that justified writing them down and sharing them,” Van Zandt said in a statement. “As far as my life story? Well I hope this book explains it to me!”
Publisher Mary Ann Naples at Hachette notes. “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 & roll to consequential activism and a third act in groundbreaking television, Hachette Books is proud to bring Van Zandt’s odyssey to readers.”
