Pretty Paper


Title: Pretty Paper

Author: Willie Nelson with David Ritz

Publisher: Blue Rider Press

Pub. Date: 22 November, 2016


This is a warm holiday story made to fit Willie Nelson’s song Pretty Paper. A tale, or fable, as it has been called, that is both a glimpse into the early years of Willie’s career and a might-have-been story of a special man named Vernon complete with Texas sixties honkytonk life, sweet young love, and soulful music as filling as the Chili-Rice to die for at the little mom and pop cafe.


If you are looking for a book to gift for the holidays, here it is. You don’t have to be a fan of Willie Nelson (I am not) to appreciate it. Like a warm fire or a hot cup of something after playing in the snow, it is easy for anyone to enjoy.


A copy was received from the publisher through the firsttoread program in exchange for an honest review.
