Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Songteller is an appropriate title, for Parton is as much a storyteller as she is a musician…Throughout, it’s clear that Parton understands both the sheer power of music and her own considerable gifts as a songwriter, performer, storyteller, and collaborator…Heartwarming and insightful in equal measure.” Library Journal
“A hefty retrospective…All songs have brief introductions on topics such as when and how Parton wrote them, and longer pieces show her evolution from ‘a hard-core country artist’ with a ‘girlish soprano tremolo’ to a multifaceted star also at ease with pop, gospel, and bluegrass…Parton conceals more than she reveals about her 50-plus-year marriage…She is frank, however, about professional setbacks…A splashy, entertaining guide to the lyrics of one of the most popular musicians of our time.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
