Overview


In this insightful biography, John Carter Cash paints a very personal portrait of his father’s rich inner life, exploring Johnny Cash’s creative spirit, his fundamentally loving nature, and his inspiring persistence. A record of a deep and ongoing conversation between father and son, House of Cash documents Johnny Cash’s drive to live deliberately as he worked to determine his values, share them with those close to him, and reaffirm them on a daily basis. Topics covered include the nature of creativity, the responsibilities that come with fatherhood and friendship, the need for humility and morality, the value of reading, and the obligation we all have to sympathize with the downtrodden. This is an extremely personal biography of a deeply passionate soul whose music sprang from the way he lived. Previously published in an expanded coffee-table edition, this reprint makes John Carter Cash’s moving biography available to a wider audience both print and e-book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Even in death, Johnny Cash remains a larger-than-life figure. The legendary figure's only son, John Carter Cash, knows that narrative well. Yet in his own memoir, House of Cash: The Legacies of My Father, Johnny Cash, the 45-year-old shows a more personal side of his dad."
Rolling Stone
