More About Hank Hung the Moon . . . and Warmed Our Cold, Cold Hearts by Rheta Grimsley Johnson
 
 
 
Overview
Nationally syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson's Hank Hung the Moon is more of a musical memoir than a biography: the author's evocative and personal stories of 1950s and '60s musical staples--elementary school rhythm bands, British Invasion rock concerts and tear-jerker movie musicals. It was a simpler time when Hank roamed the Earth; the book celebrates a world of 78 rpm records and 5-cent Cokes, with Hank providing the soundtrack and wisdom. A Cajun girl learns to understand English by listening to Hank on the radio. A Hank impersonator works by day at a prison but, by night, makes good use of his college degree in country music. Hank's lost daughter, Jett, devotes her life to embracing the father she never knew. Finally, stories you haven't heard a thousand times before about people who love Hank, some famous, most not. This lively little book uses Hank as metaphor for life. You'll tap your toe and demand an encore.
