Utterly essential reading. I've been a fan of the *idea* of Woody Guthrie since I was a kid, but this was the first time I've really sat down and learned about the man. Hooo boy. I'm even more in love with his talent and silliness now, and (for better or worse) much more aware of the myriad tragedies in his life, and how they shaped his work and legacy. A well-written account of a tough life. *Very* well researched and for the most part objective and not reverential.
