Diamond is Forever

David Wild at Davis-Kidd
Neil Diamond may not be your dish of...well, schmaltz, but he has riveted fans at the Arena in recent years, and his voice shows no signs of wear or weakening. He Is...I Say: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Neil Diamond, David Wild's engaging take on the "Jewish Elvis" (based on exclusive interviews with the star), follows Diamond's path from a shy childhood passed in Brooklyn to the Brill Building to a decades-long, multi-platinum, global career that perhaps had its most memorable moment at the Democratic National Convention, when JFK's only surviving child walked toward the microphone to introduce her "Uncle Teddy," still showing the marks of his recent surgery for brain cancer, to the strains of "Sweet Caroline."
