Williams was named "America's best songwriter" by Time and one of the "100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time" by Rolling Stone.


"[Lucinda] Williams's memoir is as flinty, earthy and plain-spoken as her songs. . . . [It] shows how deep [her] grit runs."--The New York Times

"The often hilarious, occasionally harrowing Don't Tell Anybody the Secrets I Told You is a bracingly candid chronicle of a sui generis character plotting a ramshackle but ultimately triumphant trajectory. . . . Williams leaves few stones unturned."--The Wall Street Journal

"Remarkable . . . Reading like it was written on a series of cocktail napkins in the absolutely best way, this ever-quotable memoir of a born songsmith has something to offer nearly any grownup who has listened to music for the last half-century."--Booklist

"Honest and raw, this book serves a slice of an inspiring life that reminds readers to keep trying."--Library Journal

"Revealing . . . a poignant, plainspoken life story from a dedicated musician."--Kirkus Reviews

"Raw and honest, this must-read account soars on the back of [Lucinda] Williams's hard-won wisdom about making art and overcoming struggle. Fans and non-fans will be rapt."--Publishers Weekly
