Miami Book Fair presents Art Garfunkel What Is It All But Luminous (Notes from an underground man). In this book Garfunkel writes about his life before, during, and after Simon & Garfunkel, their folk-rock music in the roiling age that embraced and was defined by their pathbreaking sound. Growing up in the 1940s and ’50s (son of a traveling salesman), a middle class Jewish boy, living in a red brick semi-attached house in Kew Gardens, Queens, a kid who was different, meeting Paul Simon in school, the funny guy who made Art laugh; and much more.
Art Garfunkel attended Columbia University, where he earned a master’s degree in mathematics. He performed with Paul Simon as Simon & Garfunkel from 1963 to 1970. Garfunkel, with Paul Simon, has been the recipient of six Grammys, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 1990 was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Garfunkel lives in New York with his wife and two children. He continues to travel around the world giving concert performances, and since 1973 has produced twelve solo albums.
