Top Customer Reviews
For years Vivian carried round an anger she couldn't suppress yet, in her heart, she never stopped loving the man she met when she was a 17 year old and to whom she was married for fourteen years. What she resented was the public persona that credited Carter with saving Cash from drugs when she was a lifelong addict herself, attributing authorship of "Ring of Fire" to her when it was written entirely by Cash (and with a sexual meaning that I for one had never appreciated),the control she exercised over the increasingly vulnerable Cash and the suggestion that June was the mother of Vivian's children.
Cash himself comes over in the words of Kris Kistofferson's as "a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction". In fact the whole song ("The Pilgrim : Chapter 33" which was about a number singers) could have described Cash's life and career. He made his money and he spent his money as fast as he made it. Vivian Cash was a casualty of Cash's fame, addiction to drugs and an unscrupulous woman looking for a bigger diamond wedding ring.
The book itself is divided into three parts. The first describing the Cash's early life, the second a long collection of letters from Johnny to Vivian mainly describing his insecurities and expressions of devotion and finally life after the divorce.Read more ›
