Dolly Parton’s First Novel

-

ON MARCH 7 → Parton, a singing and songwritin­g angel sent by God to console suffering humanity and also the living embodiment of everything still good and right about America, is set to release her first novel. It’s a thriller co-authored by tireless bestseller machine James Patterson—his last boldface name co-author was former President Bill Clinton—titled Run, Rose, Run. Per Dolly’s website, the book will tell the story of what sounds like a pretty Dolly-esque character, a rising Nashville star and writer of “heart-wrenching songs” who is trying to stay one step ahead of “a brutal secret she has tried desperatel­y to hide” (and really, who among us isn’t?). At the same time, Dolly will also release an album of songs tied to the book, her first new album of self-penned material in five years.
