What to expect
Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Special Deluxe, written and read by Neil Young.
Quirky and wonderfully candid, Neil Young's new book of reminiscences is as compelling as his first book. He returns with more unforgettable stories about his six decades in the music business - but this is not your average rock biography. He centres this new work on one of his life's passions, cars, using the framework of all the cars he's ever owned to construct a narrative of his life and career, exploring and demonstrating how memories are attached to objects. Young also expresses regret for the environmental impact of his past cars, and now passionately advocates the use of clean energy.
Special Deluxe is a mix of memoir and environmental politics by one of the most gifted and influential artists of our time.
