The first major biography of the Carter family follows the musical pioneers who almost single-handedly established the sound and traditions that grew into folk, country, and bluegrass music--a style most recently popularized in the George Clooney hit movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? of photos.

Review:

James Lee Burke "Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?" is a long-overdue book about the most important family in American musical history. The Carter Family are our collective link to the past, not simply to the southern past, either, but to the enormous, antithetically mixed culture that would finally produce the most creative and interesting nation on earth. In some ways this is a sad book, but it's an indispensable one for the person who wants to learn about the origins of American music. I don't think anyone who reads this book will forget its portrayal of the mist-shrouded southern mountains and of the travail and spiritual strength that was characteristic of its people.

About the Author:

Mark Zwonitzer is a writer-director whose work appears nationally on public television. He is currently finishing up work on a documentary about the creation of the transcontinental railroad and hopes to begin work soon on a documentary about the Carter Family. He lives in Connecticut.
