  • ""Childress has redefined the American epic. He takes us on a wild ride through the last three decades as his fictional hero, Leroy Kirby, makes his meteoric rise to stardom, from the poverty-stricken child of an overprotective mother and absent father, to an icon who stands for everything American -- a role that will ultimately consume him. After reading [this book], you will never think about the South, fame, or rock-and-roll the same way again"--Amazon.com."
