“Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” collects Willie Nelson’s observations, memories, anecdotes, lyrics, and assorted bits of philosophical this and biographical that, ranging in length from a few sentences to a few pages. What rescues “Roll Me Up” from being little more than a kind of curious, yet oddly captivating soup pot of autobiographical fragments is that the book brings in the voices of family and friends, which adds texture and context.
