[Kleist] fluidly depicts the late Man In Black s rise from Depression era poverty, through to his early 1950s jam sessions with Elvis to 17-time Grammy winning legend. No veils are drawn over Cash s drug abuse and womanising; here myth doesn t overpower the man... Kleist s inky, impressionistic brushwork gives Cash s story a strong, fresh, dark edge. --The MetroAbout the Author:
