The accolades for “Last Chance Texaco” have been rolling in since its recent publication. The following are just a few excerpts form the many glowing reviews:

“This tender, fierce, intimate memoir is testament that Jones has lived a life as brave…and rich as her music with love, heartbreak, addiction, and magic, sprinkled throughout.” – O, The Oprah Magazine, Most Anticipated Books in 2021

“Wise and gorgeous. This story is as poetic as the songs that made Jones famous.” - Publisher’s Weekly

“Ricki Lee Jones’ life became her art.” – Rolling Stone

“The Rickie Lee Jones presented in “Last Chance Texaco” …did not take shape by chance but by the very real power of her personality and the strength of her artistry. In this raw and roving life story, Jones depicts a child who recognized her humanity and worth even when others wouldn’t…” – The Washington Post

“Men leave, fame fizzles, family breaks your heart….but Jones knows a good story and how to tell it.” – Kirkus

“In gorgeous prose interspersed with her lyrics. This is as distinctive as she is. A rich, bracing, and candid memoir dancing with the love of language.” – Booklist

Rolling Stone printed a fantastic excerpt from the book where she recounts her "surreal" meetup with the legendary Van Morrison here: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/rickie-lee-jones-van-morrison-memoir-1150456.
