If you had to give America a voice, it's been said more than once, that voice would be Willie Nelson's.
For more than fifty years, he' s taken the stuff of his life-- the good and the bad-- and made from it a body of work that has become a permanent part of our musical heritage and kept us company through the good and the bad of our own lives.
So it' s fitting, and cause for celebration, that he has finally set down in his own words a book that does justice to his great gifts as a storyteller. In The Facts of Life, Willie Nelson reflects on what has mattered to him in life and what hasn't. He also tells some great dirty jokes. The result is a book as wise and hilarious as its author.
Who knew the world s best-loved country singer had such a good sense of humor? "Texas Monthly" You can t not like Willie Nelson. "The San Diego Union-Tribune" Pure Willie Nelson...equal parts minstrel, scoundrel, and cowboy and all of it s genuine. "The Washington Times""
