    Worthwhile

    Rodney Crowell's memoir, sometimes poignant and often outrageously funny, is a tribute to his parents. It proves that what could tersely be described as a deprived childhood in an abusive, dysfunctional family can in fact provide nurture -- and yes, love -- for talent to grow and flourish. I bought this book because I grew up in Crowell's Houston, albeit in a different part of town. But what kept me engaged were shared experiences of the times: the mosquito trucks, the terrible weather, the omnipresence of church in community life. Being a fan of Crowell's music, I can't help feeling that his manuscript was hijacked by someone who logged too many hours at writers' workshops. (Example: "A full 6 feet and 4 inches of antediluvian autocracy rose fom its leather chair like the gray dawn of the Apocalypse, pulling from a hidden sheath the exact crimson Excalibur I'd foresworn never to lay eyes on.") I much prefer his singing voice: "The chill in my bones just reminds me that life isn't fair and nobody cares/About lost souls surviving on hard knocks and vice."
