Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Working with music journalist Oermann, Parton here assembles the lyrics to 175 of her songs (from the roughly three thousand she has written). Beginning with a song she wrote at age six, addressed to a beloved corncob doll, the volume follows the singer-songwriter through a career in country music that started in earnest when she was in her teens, through sidetracks into pop music and movies, and returned to her bluegrass roots. Rather than stick to a strictly chronological approach, the book groups Parton's lyrics by subject matter, so a later-career song might appear in a chapter on her early life or family history. Each of the lyrics is preceded by a couple sentences of context provided by Oermann and notes on the song from Parton, many of which showcase her wry sense of humor, as when she remarks, "I've killed a lot of puppies and kids and ladies in my songs." Copiously illustrated with pictures of Parton, her costumes, lyric sheets, and other memorabilia, this is a sweet treat for the artist's many fans.Women in Focus: The 19th in 2020"
