Come and meet author Julie Chadwick, and get her to sign a copy of her new book, The Man Who Carried Cash.
The Man Who Carried Cash details the little-known relationship between Johnny Cash and Saul Holiff (a Londoner), who oversaw every aspect of Cash's career (and much of his personal life) for more than 13 years. They had a remarkable, fascinating relationship that was at times both volatile and affectionate and is extensively detailed through a vast archive of materials that were found in a storage locker after Saul committed suicide in 2005. The contents of the locker included hundreds of personal letters, audiotaped diaries and phone calls, original photos, gold records, clippings, booklets and posters.
Saul lived in Chadwick's hometown of Nanaimo when he died, and she was then the entertainment editor at the Nanaimo Daily News. She came across the story when Saul's son Jonathan completed a documentary about his father in 2012 called My Father and the Man in Black.
The documentary will be screening at 7 pm after the signing, at the London Music Hall. Click here for details.
