John Recalls Memories from ‘Beyond Words’ With NPR

June 2, 2017

“When it comes to the great American singer/songwriters, John Prine has always been grievously underserved in the book department … until now. Incredibly, the entire literary canon dedicated to Prine, whose deceptively simple, wildly inspired songs frame everyday lives in extraordinary ways, previously consisted of a single, unauthorized biography. But now Prine has finally trotted out a tome of his own: Beyond Words.

In the video clips below, the man whose blend of cockeyed humor and almost Zen-like poetic observation resulted in some of the post-Dylan era’s most powerful songs offers up some more extensive stories about the memories the book brings up.”
