Maybe you never heard of the 1950s musical duo Tom and Jerry (you mean, like the cat and mouse?).
They gained much more fame using their own names: Simon and Garfunkel.
Paul Simon's presence in, and influence on, the music scene is explored in Peter Ames Carlin's new book Homeward Bound.
The examination goes beyond music, to the use of Simon's music as a soundtrack for generations of Americans.
