The Carter Family...

The Carter Family by Frank M. Young
The Carter Family: Don't Forget this Song

By: Frank M. Young

Genre:  Adult graphic novel

Pages: 192

Published: 2012

Read: November

3 out of 5

A graphic portrayal of June Carter-Cash's musical family - it does not cover June's life but rather the life of her parent's. Even more so her aunt, uncle, and cousins. This was a huge disappointment. I was definitely looking forward to reading about June, her sisters, and Maybelle, which were the individuals I thought made up The Carter Family musical group . It was actually Alvin Pleasant (A.P.), Maybelle's brother-in-law, that began the group. He was a huge jerk, and worse, to everyone.  I honestly don't know how any of them put up with him.  I was blown away with how he is portrayed in this graphic novel - nothing was held back.  I appreciated that there was a family tree at the beginning since I referred to it often.  Also, my copy included a music CD as well, but only 4 songs :(
