In perhaps the most intricately designed and presented rock ‘n’ roll book offered right now, John Carter Cash takes readers on an intimate journey of the life of his father, the Man in Black, from a unique point of view — his own. “My father was a complicated man, there’s no denying that,” writes John Carter Cash in his new book, “House of Cash.”
This book is part memoir and part biography. It chronicles the quirky family from the inside out. The son follows his father, music legend Johnny Cash, through a labyrinth of intense personal history, including his work in gospel, country, rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly with stars from Elvis to Willie Nelson.
The book is very nearly a genuine scrapbook. There are pull-out facsimile recipe cards, one for “John & June’s Cashburgers.” There’s a foldout copy of senior Cash’s high school diploma. Also included are the intimate photos of the elder Cash feeding orphans in Jamaica, his personal sketches and photographs of the younger Cash as a child, holding a frog in the front yard, and, later in life, of John Carter Cash’s own young son.
