About the Author:

Johnny Cash (1932-2003) was an American icon and country music superstar. Cash first sang publicly while in the air force in the early fifties. Married to country legend June Carter, he became the youngest person ever to be chosen for the Country Music Hall of Fame, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, the Gospel Hall of Fame and is also a member of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame. Over the course of his career, he appeared in feature films, hosted his own television show, he won nineteen Grammy awards, four of them posthumously, and performed everywhere from the Folsom State Prison to the White House. John Carter Cash, having been involved in music all his life, is an accomplished and award-winning record producer. He is also a singer-songwriter and recording artist. He is the only son of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. He is also the author of three children's books, a biography on his father, one on his mother's life and a fantasy novel, Lupus Rex. Paul Muldoon is the author of twelve collections of verse, including Moy Sand and Gravel, for which he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. He is Howard Clark Professor at Princeton University and is a Fellow of the Royal Society for Literature and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Review:

The greatest of the greats then and now . . . If we want to know what it means to be mortal, we need look no further than the Man in Black -- BOB DYLAN His influence spread over many generations. I loved him as a singer and writer -- MICK JAGGER I lost my innocence with Johnny Cash -- NICK CAVE He's always there, the tallest figure in the circle of integrity, the deepest voice when night comes down, and the bravest take on sanity in the midst of wild confusion -- LEONARD COHEN The poems present yet another look at a legend of American music . . . Unmistakably personal . . . Strikingly evocative * * New York Times * * A rich collection . . . Fresh and genuine * * Rolling Stone * * A beautiful and loving tribute . . . This intoxicating anthology of Cash's unpublished work blends the hazy lines of song and poetry . . The sheer brilliance of his poetry speaks for itself, its stunning simplicity rivalling the likes of Plath and Wordsworth * * The Student * *
