Fine/Fine. From Publishers Weekly When asked to write her first memoir, Lynn was in her early 30s: "I hadn't never done nothing with my life except sing and have babies, and I didn't think I had a life to talk about." But Coal Miner's Daughter, the story of the dirt-poor Kentucky girl who married at 14, had four of her six children before she was 21 and went on to become one of country music's most successful recording artists, captured the American imagination. In this follow-up, Lynn mostly focuses on her marriage and the trials and pleasures of Nashville stardom, including fond recollections of friends like Conway Twitty and Tammy Wynnette. Lynn admits that the passing of her husband, Doo drunk, abusive, womanizing and yet her most loyal, trusted companion in 1996, freed her to write more openly. There are no stunning revelations here, rather a series of small, genuine ones about family and career. Though her grammar may make purists flinch ("I thought me and Doo was no longer husband and wife just because he throwed me out"), Lynn's literary voice is as natural and endearing as her songs. Many tales have a conspiratorial tone, and Lynn is quite willing to incriminate herself ("I ain't proud of that story or this next one, but this one has such a good ending I got to tell it anyway"). Honest and always entertaining, Lynn's memoir should delight country music fans and perhaps win her some new ones. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. Product Description: In this riveting follow-up to her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Coal Miner's Daughter, Loretta Lynn continues her captivating story about triumph over the odds. Loretta Lynn's first memoir, Coal Miner's Daughter, was a #1 national bestseller that sparked an Oscar-winning movie and left fans hungry for more. Now Loretta finishes that story, and the second half of her life is every bit as remarkable and inspiring as the first. In a friendly, down-home style that belies her stature as country music's most celebrated performer, Loretta writes candidly about the price of fame and the stresses of stardom; tells of friends and family she's loved and lost along the way; and shares secrets not included in her first book. But at the heart of this memoir is her stormy relationship with Doo, the man she married at thirteen and stayed with until he died, through his drinking, their violent arguments, and their passionate reconciliations. Loretta reveals the devotion behind "one of the hardest love stories in the world." Filled with intimate portraits of country legends, and brimming with folksy humor, this personal tale of grit, determination, and loyalty will enthrall Loretta's countless fans and anyone who adores a good old-fashioned love story. Loretta Lynn, the most celebrated entertainer in the history of country music has a lot to sing about: --9 gold albums --A national bestselling book and film, Coal Miner's Daughter --First female artist to win the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year --First country artist to win the prestigious Golden Plate award given to those who excel in all fields of achievement worldwide --First female recording artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame --Longtime member of the Country Music Hall of Fame --One of Entertainment Weekly's 100 Entertainers for 1950-2000 --One of Ladies' Home Journal's 10 Most Admired Women of the World 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, Hyperion Books, 2002, New York. 1977. Viking Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 269 pages. September 1977. hardcover. Juan Goytisolo (born 6 January 1931 in Barcelona) is a Spanish poet, essayist, and novelist. He lives in a voluntary self-exile in Marrakech. Juan Goytisolo was born to an aristocratic family. He has claimed that this level of privilege, accompanied by the cruelties of his great-grandfather and the miserliness of his grandfather (discovered through the reading of old family letters and documents), was a major reason for his joining the Communist party in his youth. His father was imprisoned by the Republican government during the Spanish Civil War, while his mother (Julia Gay) was killed in the first Francoist air raid in 1938. After law studies, Goytisolo published his first novel, The Young Assassins, in 1954. His deep opposition to Francisco Franco led him into exile in Paris in 1956, where he worked as a reader for Gallimard. In the early 1960s, he was a friend of Guy Debord. Breaking with the realism of his earlier novels, he published Marks of Identity (1966), Count Julian (1970), and Juan the Landless (1975). As with all his works, they were banned in Spain until after Franco's death. Count Julian (1970, 1971, 1974) takes up, in an act of outspoken defiance, the side of Julian, count of Ceuta, a man traditionally castigated as the ultimate traitor in Spanish history. In Goytisolo's own words, he imagines ‘the destruction of Spanish mythology, its Catholicism and nationalism, in a literary attack on traditional Spain.’ He identifies himself ‘with the great traitor who opened the door to Arab invasion.’ The narrator in this novel, an exile in North Africa, rages against his beloved Spain, forming an obsessive identification with the fabled Count Julian, dreaming that, in a future invasion, the ethos and myths central to Hispanic identity will be totally destroyed. Goytisolo was married to the publisher, novelist and screenwriter Monique Lange. Lange died in 1996. After her death, he is noted as saying their once shared Paris apartment had become like a tomb. In 1997 he moved to Marrakech. 0670410047. keywords: 42276. inventory # 4208. FROM THE PUBLISHER - With this extraordinary novel, Juan Goytisolo brings to a stunning conclusion the trilogy on which he has been working for the past decade, of which his MARKS OF IDENTITY and COUNT JULIAN form the first two parts. It is a work of fiction that defies easy description, in that the familiar formulas of plot and character have been bypassed. Like its predecessor Count Julian, Juan the landless is, as Carlos Fuentes noted of the earlier work, ‘a landmark novel of Spanish literature.’ If Count Julian focused on the author’s Spain and constitutes perhaps the most ‘terrible attack against the oppressive forces of a nation’ that a native son has ever penned, the new novel transcends the geographical limitations formerly imposed and moves back and forth in time and space: Juan is not only landless but timeless. Like so many of Goytisolo’s heroes, Juan is an exile: and ‘exile has turned you into a completely different being, who has nothing to do with the one your countrymen once knew: their law is no longer your law: their justice is no longer your justice: no one awaits you in Ithaca: as anonymous as any passing stranger, you will visit your own dwelling and dogs will bark at your heels,,,.’ From this position above the melee, Juan views the festering world, beyond it, like the Master of the Plantation on High, yet still of it, the suffering, not unsinful son. If Count Julian is, as Fuentes noted, ‘a shout from the heart and belly,’ Juan the landless is more a cry of pain. The searing prose, the rebel’s proud spirit, the imagery and ironic humor reminiscent at times of Sade and Genet, the mordant eroticism-all are here present, even more masterfully blended than in the earlier works. ‘It is natural,’ noted V. S. Pritchett in The New Yorker, ‘that Goytisolo should immediately bring Joyce, Malcolm Lowry, Beckett, and even Nabokov to mind,’ If the comparisons seem at first glance exaggerated, it is becoming increasingly clear that, with the appearance of each new novel, Goytisolo, in his concerns as in his mastery of craft and language, is fully worthy to be considered among the major innovators of our time. Juan Goytisolo was born in Barcelona in 1931; and his early memories are of the searing Civil War. He studied at the universities of Madrid and Barcelona, but in 1957, when it became obvious that Franco’s repressive regime would not tolerate free expression, he left and remained an exile for almost twenty years, over which period he published seven novels and two works of nonfiction-all banned in Spain. Since Franco’s death he has seen several of his repressed works published in Spain, and recently had the ironic distinction of seeing two of his novels on the Spanish best-seller lists at the same time. Helen R. Lane translates with equal ease and brilliance from the Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Over the past several years she has won virtually every major prize awarded translators, including the prestigious PEN. Prize, which she won in 1975 for her translation of Goytisolo’s COUNT JULIAN. .
