In this Time Top 100 Book of the Year, the National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Heartland â€œanalyzes how Dolly Partonâ€™s songsâ€”and successâ€”have embodied feminism for working-class womenâ€ (People). Growing up amid Kansas wheat fields and airplane factories, Sarah Smarsh witnessed firsthand the particular vulnerabilitiesâ€”and strengthsâ€”of women in working poverty. Meanwhile, country songs by female artists played in the background, telling powerful stories about life, men, hard times, and surviving. In her family, she writes, â€œcountry music was foremost a language among women. Itâ€™s how we talked to each other in a place where feelings arenâ€™t discussed.â€ And no one provided that language better than Dolly Parton. In this â€œtribute to the woman who continues to demonstrate that feminism comes in coats of many colors,â€ Smarsh tells readers how Partonâ€™s songs have validated women who go unheard: the poor woman, the pregnant teenager, the struggling mother disparaged as â€œtrailer trash.â€ Partonâ€™s broader careerâ€”from singing on the front porch of her familyâ€™s cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains to achieving stardom in Nashville and Hollywood, from â€œgirl singerâ€ managed by powerful men to self-made mogul of business and philanthropyâ€”offers a springboard to examining the intersections of gender, class, and culture. Infused with Smarshâ€™s trademark insight, intelligence, and humanity, this is â€œan ambitious bookâ€ (The New Republic) about the icon Dolly Parton and an â€œin-depth examination into gender and class and what it means to be a woman and a working-class hero that feels particularly important right nowâ€ (Refinery29).
