The Little Guide to Dolly Parton: It's Hard to be a Diamond in a Rhinestone World [9781911610380]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The ultimate pick-me-up to save you from the nine-to-five heartbreak blues.

The Little Guide to Dolly Parton is your bible of devastating Dolly-isms. Yes, that's right, the most iconic and acclaimed female country singer in the history of music is so inventive and brilliant with her clever wisecracks and sage advice that popular culture has crowned her with an -ism after her name. No one else is as worthy.

For more than five decades, Dolly has been laying down her own brand of whip-smart wit and wisdom to the world, with many quotes and quips becoming as famous as her lyrical genius, for which she has won too many song writing awards and honours to mention. Stacked to the rafters with more than 150 bite-size bon-mots, one-liners and ripostes - as well profound and sincere observations - The Little Guide to Dolly Parton is your new favourite life companion.

'I never think of myself as a star because, as somebody once said, A star is nothing but a big ball of gas - and I don't want to be that.'
Reflecting on stardom during an interview with Billboard, 2014.

'I'm proud of my hillbilly, white trash background. To me that keeps you humble; that keeps you good. And it doesn't matter how hard you try to outrun it - if that's who you are, that's who you are. It'll show up once in a while.'
Discussing her background, during an interview with Southern Living, 2014.
