Book Review: Otis James’s ‘Dolly Parton’

Dolly Parton

A quintessential potboiler that seems best suited for serialization in the National Star, Otis James’s Dolly Parton offers practically no insight into the music of its subject. The first four pages focus almost exclusively on her physical appearance and it’s all downhill from there. Expect an assortment of gossip about Parton and her husband, plus a plethora of flimsy evidence regarding an alleged affair with ex-musical partner Porter Wagoner. Yawn.
