Editorial Reviews

Metroland
Thoroughly researched and deeply moving, carrying itself with the same dignity as the man himself.
Douglas Brinkley
What makes this so valuable a biography is that Streissguth…debunks the myths that have enveloped Cash, in large part owing to two autobiographies, Man in Black (1975) and Cash (1997), both full of exaggerations. Although Streissguth is not the literary equal of Peter Guralnick (Elvis Presley) or Elijah Wald (Robert Johnson), he avoids the gush-and-awe prose of Rolling Stone and Spin…The amount of new archival material he unearths…is truly impressive.
—The New York Times
