No, I'm not talking about cold, hard cash. I'm talking about J.R. Cash. Ever since I saw the movie Walk the Line I have been fascinated both by his personal and his professional life. I have read a lot of things about him, and just today I purchased (online) his autobiography, as well as his first wife's story. I'm really looking forward to delving into the facts of his life, and not relying just on Hollywood and Wiki and related articles for his story.
I don't know what it is that has me so captivated - maybe it's the love story between Cash and June Carter. As tumultuous as their relationship began, and as hurtful as it must have been for Cash't first wife, theirs seem to be a deep, true, all-encompasing love that is generally saved for Hollywood. But I believe it was real. It was deep and it was raw. So much so that John and June died within 4 months of each other.
I can't decide which book to read first. Maybe I should read them side-by-side? But that might get confusing. I can't wait til they arrived!!!
