Forever Words : The Unknown Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Forever Words : The Unknown Poems Paperback / softback

Edited by Paul Muldoon


Since his first recordings in 1955, Johnny Cash has been an icon in the music world.

In his newly discovered poems and song lyrics, we see the world through his eyes.

The poetry reveals his depth of understanding, both of the world around him and within - his frailties and his strengths alike.

He pens verses in his hallmark voice, reflecting upon love, pain, freedom, fame and mortality.

Illustrated with facsimile reproductions of Cash's own handwritten pages, Forever Words is a remarkable new addition to the canon of one of America's heroes.

His music is a part of our collective history, but here he demonstrates the depth of his talent as a writer.

Edited and introduced by Paul Muldoon, with a foreword by John Carter Cash, this is a book sure to delight and surprise fans the world over.
