This 420-page chunk of paper contains the complete works of Fender Tucker, including both of his books: TALES FROM THE TOWER and WEED, WOMEN AND SONG. The first half is fiction and the second half reads like fiction, but it's all true, according to his memory of life as it was in Farmington NM in the 50s and 60s. The book also contains the lyrics to every song he wrote back in the days he misspent as a guitar-picking slugabed. Ed Gorman wrote that he enjoyed thumbing through the many short memoirs which add up to a sort of autobiography. Does someone like Fender Tucker deserve an autobiography? Read THE COMPLEAT CALHOON and see for yourself.
