Recent Buy - Woody Guthrie, A Life - Joe Klein
Great biography of America’s hillybilly singer laureate. Klein, a Rolling Stone writer at the time, penned this in 1980 before achieving great success with his anonymous book Primary Colors in the Clinton era. Guthrie’s life has been much covered but this super biography gained great exposure when Bruce Springsteen mentioned it several times during the Born in the USA tour. As Woody said, “This is Land is Your Land”…it sure is!
