Friends who saw me carrying this book groaned at the title, assuming that what lay inside was some kind of self-hagiography. In fact, Will Oldham on Bonnie "Prince" Billy is an interview — the longest and most incisive ever done with the press-shy songwriter and actor. And if anything, the book makes a man, not a myth, of its subject, by putting him in conversation with a good friend who happens to also be a good journalist.
