 About the Book 

Nationally syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnsons Hank Hung the Moon is more of a musical memoir than a biography: the authors evocative and personal stories of 1950s and 60s musical staples-elementary school rhythm bands, British InvasionMoreNationally syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnsons Hank Hung the Moon is more of a musical memoir than a biography: the authors 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. Hanks lost daughter, Jett, devotes her life to embracing the father she never knew. Finally, stories you havent heard a thousand times before about people who love Hank, some famous, most not. This lively little book uses Hank as metaphor for life. Youll tap your toe and demand an encore.
