The Paoli, Indiana, bluegrass musician Lotus Dickey (1911-1989) is world renowned for his singing, songwriting, and fiddling. Dickey's unfulfilled desire to publish a book of his songs became a reality when a group of good friends and fellow musicians compiled the first edition of this book after his death. By the 1980s, when his artistry was at its peak, Dickey's active repertoire was very close to what is represented here--more than 100 country and folk songs, both Dickey originals and some of his favorite traditional tunes. The spirit of sharing, so deep a part of Lotus Dickey's personal philosophy, inspired this songbook. Long out of print, the new volume improves on the original with a CD in place of cassette tapes.
'What makes me saddest, is the double silence of her being. Language has packed its bags and jumped over the railing of the capsizing ship, but there is also another silence in her or around her. I can no longer hear the music of her soul.' One day, the author's mother no longer remembers the word for 'book'. This seemingly innocuous moment of distraction is the first sign of the slow disintegration of her mind. As Alzheimer's disease sets in and language increasingly escapes her, her son attempts to gather the fragments of what she has become, writing a moving, loving chronicle of the gradual descent into dementia of someone who 'no longer knows who she is, where she is or what will happen'. From the Trade Paperback edition.
