TILL THINGS ARE BRIGHTER, I’M THE MAN IN BLACK”: JOHNNY CASH’S FIRST AUTOBIOGRAPHY, INSCRIBED BY HIM.

First edition of Cash’s noted first autobiography, in which he calls his life a “spiritual odyssey.” Octavo, original cloth, illustrated with 24 pages of candid photographs. Autographed by Cash on tipped in bookplate on front free endpaper, “Johnny Cash.” Fine in a fine dust jacket.

Cash was “the vocal bedrock of American country music for more than four decades… Known as the Man in Black, both for his voice, which projected the fateful gravity of a country patriarch, and for his signature look, which suggested a cowboy undertaker, Cash was one of the few performers who outlasted trends to become a mythical figure rediscovered by each new generation… For all the grimness of his Man in Black persona, Cash insisted that he was not a morbid person. ‘I am not obsessed with death—I’m obsessed with living… The battle against the dark one and the clinging to the right one is what my life is about” (New York Times).
