As moving, disarming, and elusive as one of her classic songs, Composed is Rosanne Cash’s testament to the power of art, tradition, and love to transform a life. For more than three decades she has been one of the most compelling figures in popular music, having moved gracefully from Nashville stardom to critical recognition as a singer-songwriter and author of essays and short stories. Her remarkable body of work has often been noted for its emotional acuity, its rich and resonant imagery, and its unsparing honesty. Those qualities have enabled her to establish a unique intimacy with her audiences, and it is those qualities that inform her long-awaited memoir.

    " I love Rosanne Cash, and her memoir is amazing. I just wish it were a little longer. She's a private person, and she writes about her career and her parents with candor in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melanie | 5/12/2011

    " This book was very insightful in the life of Ms. Cash growing up in the shadows of her father. The struggles with stepping out on her own, substance abuse in the family, relationship bonds between step mother and child.

    I highly recommend "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sue | 3/29/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. Written more about phases in her life rather than a timeline. You really get the feeling from reading that she is very torn before her public and private lives. "
