JerryBookfromRickBrackNew York Times bestselling author Rick Bragg, whose new book JERRY LEE LEWIS, HIS OWN STORY officially launches October 28. Interviewing the seminal musician over the course of two summers, Bragg recreates the almost impossible to believe story of the hell-raising Southern boy who would galvanize the world and give the devil’s edge to rock and roll with songs like “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Great Balls of Fire.” Together Bragg and Lewis have created an amazing biography of the music legend: JERRY LEE LEWIS: HIS OWN STORY for this groundbreaking new book.


Bragg is the author of the New York Times bestsellers ALL OVER BUT THE SHOUTIN’, AVA’S MAN, THE PRINCE OF FROGTOWN, and I AM A SOLDIER, TOO: THE JESSICA LYNCH STORY. He has twice won the prestigious American Society of Newspaper Editors Distinguished Writing Award and more than fifty writing awards in his career. He is currently a professor of writing at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Jerry Lee Lewis helped define the wild frontier of rock and roll. His most recent albums, Last Man Standing (2006) and Mean Old Man (2010), were his most successful in thirty years. Still performing today, The Killer recently opened Jerry Lee Lewis’s Cafe and Honky Tonk on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee.
