The Autobiography

by Johnny Cash , With Patrick Carr

Category: Fiction / A - C
Publication date: 3 April 2000
Number of pages: 320

This fascinating autobiography of the country music legend recounts the highs and lows, the struggles and hard-won triumphs of his remarkable life. The story takes us from Johnny Cash's childhood on an Arkansas cotton farm to his early years at Sun Records. We read of his life on the road and meetings with, and performances for, world leaders. There is also the darker side of his life: the years of addiction to amphetamines and pain killers, a suicide attempt and the spiritual awakening that pulled him through. He looks unsparingly at his turbulent past, but remains a man of honesty, humility and humour. His memoir reveals his friendships with Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Billy Graham.

What the papers say:
'I've never met a man who combined spiritual depth, musical ability and international fame with such grace, charm and humility as Johnny.' Dr Billy Graham
