From legendary singer/songwriter Steve Earle comes the fascinating memoir he swore he’d never write.
Steve’s memoir will delve deeply into his heroes and what they meant to him‚ from Guy Clark and Willie and Waylon‚ to Steve’s uncle who gave him his first guitar as well as his first shot of dope. It will take readers into the heart of the singular‚ dynamic and fascinating Texas music scene in the 60s and 70s‚ through the pain and desperation of Steve’s drug addiction and‚ finally‚ to the grace of recovery through the Twelve Steps. Unlike many musicians penning memoirs‚ Earle is a genuine and talented writer who has authored a collection of short stories and a beautiful‚ haunting novel. This book‚ the one his fans want‚ brings that same lyrical prose to Steve’s own incredible life‚ from the exhilarating highs to the crushing lows and back again — showing that recovery is possible for even the hardest of cases.
