Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Like its title, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die is vintage Willie; in this case, unghosted journal entries written while on the road. Augmenting those totes are stories, jokes, photographs, and reflections from Nelson friends, bandmates, and family. Free-spirited Kinky Friedman provides a warm-hearted introduction to the book.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Nelson’s unmistakable voice shines through…Funny, inspirational, and bawdy, with a well-honed sense of humor.” Kirkus Reviews
“A memoir-cum-inspirational tale that’s right for the holidays.” Library Journal
