I ultimately had to go to do a bit of research online to set myself straight and determine that the story should be judged entirely as fiction. As a story, the book is much like Willie's songs. There's poignancy in the spartan prose, but it's best enjoyed if one just goes along for the Pretty Paper. And just as the song "Pretty Paper" isn't a standard Christmas Carol, this book defies the genre.
You'll find more honky-tonks and BBQ joints here than sleigh bells and reindeer. But if you're looking for something a bit different than the standard holly, jolly Christmas tale, you've come to the right place. Many thanks to NetGalley and Blue Rider Press for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review, Pretty Paper. View 2 comments.

I like to imagine that Christmas brings out the best in people. The time of year when people look to help those in need. How much is true and how much is made up, I am not sure. All I know is that it is a heartwarming tale, perfect for this time of the year! View all 19 comments. Dec 08, Petra rated it liked it. A lovely story of looking behind the misfortune and seeing the person, the whole story. Also, a story of friendship and lending a helping hand.
A lovely story to read, especially in the Holiday season. Willie's story is warm and human. It's about helping our fellow man and really listening to their story and their needs. I listened to the audio which was very casual and easy going.

Willie Nelson was a man barely making a living as a singer-songwriter in 's Forth Worth, Texas when he met a man outside of Leonard's Department Store selling colorful paper and ribbons for Christmas. The vendor was a legless man by the name of Vernon Clay and their brief meeting inspired Willie's hit song "Pretty Paper".
Willie is interested to learn Vernon's story but the private man refuses to share much about himself. In a series of coincidences, Willie encounters Vernon over a period Willie Nelson was a man barely making a living as a singer-songwriter in 's Forth Worth, Texas when he met a man outside of Leonard's Department Store selling colorful paper and ribbons for Christmas. In a series of coincidences, Willie encounters Vernon over a period of several months and learns he's a talented guitarist and singer.
Vernon eventually disappears and leaves behind the story of his life that has been filled with tragedy, heartbreak, good food, and great music. Moved by Vernon's story, Willie attempts to track down the man and offer him a chance at redemption during the holiday season. Willie Nelson is a talented storyteller and I loved that this book imagined the story of the man who did in fact inspire the song "Pretty Paper". This was a feel-good Pretty Paper story that like most holidays tales starts with bad luck and tragedy but ends with hope and redemption.
It may be a little cheesy but it's a heartwarming cozy read for the Christmas season! For more reviews, visit www. Oct 01, Marjorie rated it really liked it. The song was inspired by a real-life street vendor named Frankie Brierton. Willie always wondered who the man was who inspired his song and now Willie has written this charming Christmas tale. Whatever is true or not true, read this book with the expectation of being charmed. This book was given to me by the publisher through First to Read in return for an Pretty Paper review.
Dec 01, Asheley rated it really liked it Shelves: holiday-christmas-winterread. I love Willie Nelson and I love Christmas music. I just had to grab this from the library when I saw the cover. It was an impulsive library loan.
Pretty Paper isn't the typical holiday romance story; this is basically the backstory to Willie's classic Pretty Paper song, based at least in part on truth.
It's a tearjerker in some parts and reminds me of a Hallmark movie--many holiday stories are like this and I think that is what many of us like about them. It is warm and cozy and inviting and ends on a positive note. There is an easy conversational tone about the narrative that makes it feel like Willie himself is reading the story to us even though he is not the narrator for the entire story.
Interesting structure: book-within-a-book for a large part of the story to tell Vernon Clay's story. Recommended for fans of Willie Nelson, fans of holiday stories. Nov 05, Kelly rated it it was amazing. And for all these years Willie has wondered about the real-life Texas street vendor, selling wrapping and ribbons, who inspired his song. It is the early sixties and Willie Nelson is down and out, barely eking out a living as singer-songwriter. When Vernon disappears, he leaves behind only a diary, which tells an epic tale of life — altering tragedies, broken hearts, and crooked record men, not to mention backroad honky-tonks, down-home cooking, and country songwriting genius.
I recommend this book to anyone in the holiday spirit. I was so wrong. This book had me hooked and read it within a day. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars. Dec 08, Jeanne rated it really liked it. I honestly didn't think this book would amount to much. I was pleasantly surprised because it was very good, very interesting. It was difficult to decide how much was truth and how much was fiction. I enjoyed the story line a lot. Jan 17, Laura Paxson rated it it was ok.
I'm not really sure how to rate this. Do I rate this based on what it is and what I knew going in: that's it's a feel-good holiday tale?
Or do I rate this based on comparison with other books I read I. How much I liked it? It really was a good, warm hearted story that was easy to read and had a lot of old time country music references.
The main thing that disappointed me was that the jacket leads readers to believe that this is a true story. I was very disappointed as I'm not into happy-ending holiday fairy tales. I picked this book up because I wanted to hear the story beyond Willie's hit song. I feel like this book will have a hard time finding an audience. It strikes me as something my grandmother would read but there is enough references to sex, violence, and pot to disgust the age range of ladies who are into this kind of fluff.
That's not to say that is is gritty in any way. In fact, I think there are too FEW references to sex, pot, and gritty bar fights to interest most fans of willie's music. It was nice to read a story with a happy ending for once Dec 22, Elise rated it it was ok. An embellishment to Willie Nelson's song Pretty Paper. The song was inspired by a real person, a crippled man who sold wrapping paper in downtown Fort Worth. There are a lot of interesting background details about life in FW in the early 60s.
The embellished story was ok, but was not very well written for my taste. Dec 28, Dina rated it really liked it. I was not sure I would like this one but I really enjoyed it. Nov 30, Vicki Edkin rated it it was amazing.
