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.
