Product description

Review

Hank Williams wrote the rock'n'roll rulebook. Moving...absorbing biography of 'the hillbilly Shakespeare', Daily Express

A fabulous and tragic tale and Hemphill tells it well. Excellent, Scotsman

Moving and informative...Lovesick Blues is lean, distilled Hank, Herald

This biography does tough justice to a wrecked icon, The Times

[A] concise, startling biography...The connection between author and subject is what makes this book so rewarding, Publishers Weekly

Book Description

A captivating biography of one of America's greatest songwriters who died alone in the back of a Cadillac, aged only twenty-nine.
