"[T]his eminently readable biography of the Man in Black feels more honest about its subject than most biographies....[A]n affecting mosaic of oral history, poetry and memoir....Turner's interviews with Cash's family and friends are excellent, and tidbits such as Cash's reasons for wearing the famous black are priceless." 09/20/2004 Uncut
