Praise For Johnny Cash

“Cash’s genius as a songwriter and musician as well as his incalculable influence upon music are skillfully explored, and Neimark frequently uses excerpts from Cash’s own songs to enrich his compelling life story. Her sharp, immediate writing, which combines passages of dramatic, storylike narrative with more traditional biographical accounts, will foster readers’ appreciation of the singer-songwriter’s fierce individualism and his outlaw spirit.”—Booklist, starred review
