"Sting's gift for prose and reverence for language, nearly the equal of his musical gifts, shine on every page. Even whenBroken Musicaddresses the quixotic life of an aspiring rock & roller, it reads like literature from a more rarified time when adults didn't condescend to the vulgarities of pop culture." --Rolling Stone "You can't fault his scrupulous candor.…A natural storyteller." --London Sunday Times "Sting mixes tenderness, sadness and humor in his narration, indulging readers with the same style of descriptive, pensive words that characterize his songs….Even readers unfamiliar with Sting's music will find the book compelling." --Associated Press "A beautifully styled, elegantly crafted and intelligent portrayal of Sting's own life…[it] ranks on the highest shelf of literary debuts." --Toronto Globe and Mail "A first-rate memoir…Engrossing…With writing that is both witty and refreshingly self-deprecating, this book has pleasures that extend well beyond interest in the man's music alone." --People "An engaging, lucidly written reminiscence…intellectually vigorous…elegant and thoughtful." --Entertainment Weekly
