Narrator Adam Grupper gives an unflashy performance of this fact-driven biography, which traces Paul Simon from his roots to the work he's doing today. Simon's many relationships--romantic as well as his lifelong friendship/feud with onetime partner Art Garfunkel--are engaging enough without a narrator's embellishment, and Grupper's style helps listeners track the many names and places that feature in Simon's life. Grupper does set off quotes with a credible version of Simon's voice, as well as other familiar voices, adding to clarity. His skill also gives variation to a narrative that occasionally drags with unnecessary repetition and tangents. This solid biography will appeal to many music fans.
