The Resurrection of Johnny Cash

I have a new book out, published by Jawbone and called The Resurrection of Johnny Cash: Hurt, Redemption and American Recordings. Here's some blurb about it on Amazon.

Some early reviews are already in, and very nice they are too. The review in the new issue of
Record Collector calls it a "marvellous book ... masterfully chronicling the last few years of Cash's life ... Thomson's always eloquent writing fills the page with atmosphere and keen critical assessment." On a similarly positive note, Bill Kopp at Musoscribe has written a really astute review of the book, while Anti Music has this to say.

The review from the current edition of
The Word - the 100th issue, and a fine thing it is too - is scanned below:
