I am reserving judgment on the book on Anita Kerr until I acquire a copy of it. So many biographies these days are hatchet jobs, filled with glaring errors and other distortions. Hopefully this one will not be in that category. |
The author's last name is Pugh, so I asked my friend Ronnie Pugh (who is widely regarded as Nashville's resident country music historian) and he had never heard of the author OR the Anita Kerr book.
I hope someone who gets a copy will tell us if Jim Reeves is mentioned, etc.
BTW, in case anyone is interested -- I vowed after spending 13 years writing my 672-page biography, "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story", that I would never write another biography. It is extremely difficult and time consuming.
Well, I broke that vow and am wrapping up a 600+ page book on MARILYN MONROE.
I don't think there's any other celebrity you could name about whom more lies have been told than Marilyn. A bunch of authors have made a fortune propagating outrageous slander of this poor woman, repeating the same outrageous stories without fact-checking, etc.
My daughter Sara, who helped on the Reeves book, is a professional journalist who won the Outstanding Young Journalist of the Year Award from the Iowa newspaper assn. a few years ago and her work appears nationwide via the Associated Press and Gannett -- the USA Today network of papers.
She has been helping me edit the new Marilyn book. There are many surprises and I dug deep to uncover a lot of stuff that nobody else has reported. If any of you like Marilyn, I think you'll be interested in the new MM book I'm finishing. It should be released by the end of the year.
