'In the 1980s, Johnny Cash was languishing on the cabaret circuit, until a group of indie artists turned him from country star into cultural icon....' --The Guardian, April 2011
About the Author
Graeme Thomson has written on popular culture for The Guardian, The Observer, Uncut, Mojo, Esquire, The Word, Time Out, the New Statesman and the Herald, and speaks frequently on radio, including BBC Radio Four's flagship arts show Front Row. Thomson is the author of three acclaimed biographies of elusive, often difficult musicians: Complicated Shadows (Canongate, 2004), a study of Elvis Costello; The Outlaw (Virgin, 2006), an intimate portrait of Willie Nelson; and most recently Under The Ivy (Omnibus, 2010), an in-depth biography of Kate Bush. His third book, I Shot A Man In Reno (Continuum 2008), was a subjective history of the many different, often unsatisfactory ways popular music has dealt with the issue of mortality.

I learned so much about Cash and the making of the American Recordings in this book. Thomson is anything but worshipful of Cash, but captures the integrity of the man and also the contradictions and explores the reasons why he continued to tour so often and with such a disappointing revue-style live format. I especially enjoyed the extensive interviews with Rosanne Cash, Chelsea Crowell and the figures involved first-hand in the making of the American Recordings.
Graeme Thomson's reviews of Rick Rubin's collaborations with Johnny Cash are clear-eyed, fair, sometimes brutally honest and always enlightening. This is a fabulous book that I can't wait to share with fellow Johnny Cash fans. Highly recommended.
