Johnny Cash, the reader
An Anonymous Patron writes ""You know that book?" he says, his face lighting up.
"I love that book," I say. "And you know that book!" Why am I surprised that Johnny Cash has read Steinbeck?
"Know that book?" he says. "I was that book." He smiles at me. It's kind of like being smiled at by Monument Valley, or the Hoover Dam. He pronounces it "Grapesawrath", like Rose of Sharon is pronounced Rosasharn.
"You like that song?" he says, and he pulls over his guitar.
