She's hit the top as a singer, songwriter, actress, music publisher, theme park owner, television producer, philanthropist and cosmetics maker but she has kept her sense of humour and the country philosophy that has helped her from the start. In this memoir, Dolly tells the personal stories her fans can't wait to hear about: growing up in Tennessee, her friends and family, her unique marriage, her friendships with other stars. Dolly reveals the woman behind the superstar, who still considers herself a girl from the country.

‘I've tried to tell the whole story openly and honestly, from the heart… You may like me more, or you may never like me at all; but you will get to know the heart behind the boobs like never before.’
She is an award-wining singer and songwriter and the star of such movies as 'Steel Magnolias, The Best little Whorehouse in Texas and Straight Talk'. Her theme park, Dollywood, attracts hundreds of thousands of fans each year to her native Tennessee. Dolly Parton is a multi-talented dynamo and one of the worlds best-loved superstars.
Now for the first time Dolly talks openly about her life: the rags-to-riches story of the country girl behind the superstar, told with integrity, humour and heartfelt honesty as only Dolly can. She describes her tough but loving upbringing in rural Tennessee, her rise through the ranks of the Nashville country music community to the top of the charts world-wide as singer and composer of such classics as 'Nine to Five' and 'I Will Always Love You'. She describes how her faith has help her overcome the obstacles that are inherent in a life in the spotlight; she talks about her friendships and working relationships with other stars, and how she has balanced this life with her twenty-nine-year marriage. For all the fame and fortune, Dolly has never strayed far from her roots, and through her humanitarian efforts, has given much to the place she grew up.
‘'Dolly 'may never rank stylistically with James Joyce's 'Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, 'but then Parton has better material’
‘Dolly's "tell-it-like-it-is-style" elevates 'My Life and Other Unfinished Business 'into the upper echelons of showbiz autobiography’
