Reviews

"Take the dean of the Texas school of songwriting; mix in his wife, Susanna, an ethereal painter and an accomplished songwriter herself; add in their tragic friendship with Townes van Zandt, a tortured genius; and tell it all through the eyes of their friend, Tamara Saviano, one of the most gifted of Nashville chroniclers. With that, you have this book, a haunting account of the fiercely independent Guy Clark, and the '70s songwriting scene that swirled around him, hoping to find its own way to the other side of the sky." -- Alanna Nash, author of The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley

"Tamara Saviano hasn't just written the definitive biography of the definitive Texas singer-songwriter. She goes deep in unfolding the intimate relationship between Guy Clark, his wife and creative muse Susanna Clark, and their best friend, the other defintive Texas singer-songwriter, Townes Van Zandt." -Joe Nick Patoski author of Willie Nelson: An Epic Life and Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught in the Crossfire.-- (05/11/2016)
"Is one of the very best musical biographies in many years" -- The Morton Report--The Morton Report (10/06/2016)
"Detailed, enlightening account. She maneuvers the story elegantly from biography to memior." -- The Wall Street Journal-- (11/29/2016)
"Saviano has patiently compiled a must-have edition to the library of any actual or amateur musicologist, and a compelling story of love, friendship, tragedy and cultural magic for the rest of us."--Lone Star Book Reviews
--Lone Star Book Reviews (01/25/2017)
"Saviano captures the full story of an extraordinary life and talent, told with both an unwavering honesty and loving admiration"--Austin Chronicle
--Austin Chronicle (01/25/2017)
"reads like an Americana version of Jack Kerouac's On the Road . . . If this were a record, it'd be my record not of just the year, but of the decade."--No Depression-- (04/11/2017)
"sent me back to my stereo and weeks of Guy Clark songs. It's that good of a book, and he's that good of a songwriter. . . . Highly recommended." --Pacific Rim Review of Books--Pacific Rim Review of Books
