Long Way Gone
by Charles Martin
The book jacket states: “A radical retelling of the prodigal son story, Long Way Gone takes us from tent revivals to the Ryman Auditorium to the tender relationship between a broken man and the father who never stopped loving him”. Cooper O’Connor becomes the main draw for his father’s tent revivals because of his guitar and piano playing abilities as well as his songwriting. He yearns to show his talent to a bigger audience and so steals his father’s car, money, and guitar and runs away to Nashville. It’s a very moving story and gives insight to what happens behind the scenes in the country music world.
