The Man Called Cash: The Life, Love and Faith of an American Legend by Steve Turner
One of the most influential figures in American music and pop-culture, Johnny Cash is an icon to people of all ages. Steve Turner sifts the man from the legend and presents a picture of the often contradictory figure with unflinching honesty, getting close to the heart of the perfomer known throughout the world as the Man in Black. The Man Called Cash follows the star on his stumbling journey from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the drawing rooms of presidents. It details his self-destructiveness and brushes with the law, as well as his generosity and status as American icon - and keeping in view throughout the deep, enduring faith that informed his life and work. We see Johnny Cash not only as performer and recording artist, but also as neighbour, church-goer, fisherman, father, brother, husband and friend.
