Read full description of the books:
It's a hard road but it fits your shoes.
Fans of Rosanne Cash know she's been writing her memoir for decades... through her songs.
The pain, the joy, the love and the heartbreak - stories of a life. laid out for your musical enjoyment.
But, this is the "official" version, the one for you to read instead of listen to... Cash writes quite candidly about her relationship with her famous father, the importance of family, and her struggles with balancing her career and motherhood, Many musicians think they can do no wrong, so it was refreshing to find Cash dissing some of her own work, particularly the song Real Woman from Interiors, the only song of hers I honestly can't stand.
I've been a fan since 1981, though I never leaned on Cash as hard as I did after my mother died in 2008. The Black Cadillac disc, featuring songs about the deaths of Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, and Rosanne's mother, Vivian, provided a strange comfort, and I listened to it incessantly during those dark days.
But I hear his voice close in my ear
I see her smile and wave.
I blink and while my eyes are closed
they both have gone away
--House on the Lake
Once we had a mother
but that's all over now
so wish her well and let her go
just as soon as you know how
In the book, Cash speaks eloquently about death as something that unites us all:
You begin to realize that everyone has a tragedy, and that if he doesn't, he will. You recognize how much is hidden behind the small courtesies and civilities of everyday existence. Deep sorrow and traces of great loss run through everyone's lives, and yet they let others step into the elevator first, wave them ahead in a line of traffic, smile and greet their children and inquire about their lives, and never let on for a second that they, too, have lain awake at night, in longing and regret, that they too have cried until it seemed impossible that one person could hold so many tears, that they, too, keep a picture locked in their heart and bring it out in quiet solitary moments to caress and remember.
Loss is the great unifier, the terrible club to which we all belong.
If you're a Rosanne Cash fan, this is essential reading.
