"Honky Tonk Angel has been one of our most consistent sellers since
publication of the 1993 hardcover Collector's Edition. It has found thousands of
fans around the world, and continues to elicit incredible praise."


"Gazes unflinchingly at its subject...The book to read! "           Nashville Tenneseean 

"... Done with great respect and humor and just enough down-and-dirty detail... 
Worth the price of admission ... Cline's life was a country song - laughing on the
outside, crying on the inside."

New York Daily News

"Patsy Cline is the undisputed queen of Hillbilly Heaven...[Honky Tonk Angel]
 poignantly chronicles her journey from planet Earth all the way to the Pearly
Gates ... A fascinating trip and a fascinating read."
Marty Stuart


         "The book is one of the most compelling biographies ...
Written with great skill and the cooperation of [Cline's] family and friends."
                       Northern Echo (U.K.)


            "A warts and all look at Patsy Cline's turbulent career ...
The book is absorbing ... superlative biography."

Daily Post (U.K.)            

"This thoroughly researched book manages to capture the raw elements that 
went into making Cline the entertainer she was - and to his credit, 
Nassour doesn't try to paint her over in shades of gold...
it provides insight into a woman who was certainly one of the most unusual 
and talented performers to come out of country music in any decade...


"No Patsy Cline fan on this planet does not own Ellis Nassour's biography.
It was the first and will always be considered THE definitive one long after
we are gone.
It's also one of the prime reasons Patsy's legacy will continue."

In Memoriam
Carrie Lee McNeil

Vancouver, Canada
1961 - 2008
We began corresponding on publication of my first Patsy bio.  Carrie Lee was the ultimate
Patsy fan, and special in many ways. In spite of many challenges, because of a lifetime of illnesses,  
she was a tireless promoter of  country music and Patsy Cline's legacy. No one could ask
for a more valued friend.
God bless her determination and spunk.  

Remembering the legacy of my good friend and beloved friend of Patsy Cline
Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon,
better known to one and all as
Cousin Minnie Pearl
October 25, 1912 - March 4, 1996
