Product description

Review

"Steve Earle brings to his prose the same authenticity, poetic spirit, and cinematic energy he projects in his music. I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive is like a dream you can't shake, offering beauty and remorse, redemption in spades" (Patti Smith)

"A doctor, a Mexican girl, an Irish priest, the ghost of Hank Williams, and JFK the day before he dies. This subtle and dramatic book is the work of a brilliant songwriter who has moved from song to orchestral ballad with astonishing ease" (Michael Ondaatje)

"Earle's language is vividly poetic, his humour is never clunky and he always convinces, whether working on a cinematic or intimate scale" (Sharon O'Connell Time Out)

"A rich, raw mix of American myth and hard social reality, of faith and doubt, always firmly rooted in a strong sense of character" (Charles Frazier)

"Steve Earle writes like a shimmering neon angel" (Kinky Friedman)

Book Description

From celebrated musician Steve Earle comes a novel imagining the life, addiction, and redemption of Doc Ebersole as he is haunted by his former patient, Hank Williams.
