Bono - artist; activist and the lead singer of Irish rock band U2 - has written a memoir: honest and irreverent; intimate and profound; Surrender is the story of the remarkable life he's lived; the challenges he's faced and the friends and family who have shaped and sustained him. 'When I started to write this book I was hoping to draw in detail what I'd previously only sketched in songs. The people; places; and possibilities in my life. Surrender is a word freighted with meaning for me. Growing up in Ireland in the seventies with my fists up (musically speaking); it was not a natural concept. A word I only circled until I gathered my thoughts for the book. I am still grappling with this most humbling of commands. In the band; in my marriage; in my faith; in my life as an activist. Surrender is the story of one pilgrim's lack of progress ... With a fair amount of fun along the way.' - Bono As one of the music world's most iconic artists and the cofounder of organizations ONE and (RED); Bono's career has been written about extensively. But in Surrender; it's Bono who picks up the pen; writing for the first time about his remarkable life and those he has shared it with. In his unique voice; Bono takes us from his early days growing up in Dublin; including the sudden loss of his mother when he was 14; to U2's unlikely journey to become one of the world's most influential rock bands; to his more than 20 years of activism dedicated to the fight against AIDS and extreme poverty. Writing with candour; self-reflection; and humour; Bono opens the aperture on his life - and the family; friends and faith that have sustained; challenged and shaped him. Surrender's subtitle; "40 Songs; One Story;" is a nod to the book's 40 chapters; which are each named after a U2 song. Bono has also created 40 original drawings for Surrender which will appear throughout the book.
