Lovesick Blues: The Life of Hank Williams
Paul Hemphill (au)
Hank Williams, the quintessential country music singer & songwriter, died alone on New Yearís Day 1953 at the age of 29. He died much as he had lived -- drunk, forlorn, suffering from a birth defect, wondering when the bubble would burst. This definitive biography of the man & his music takes the reader on a journey through Williamsís life & times: his dirt-poor beginnings as a sickly child, learning music from a black street singer, refining it in raucous honky-tonks during the depression, & emerging as a star of the Grand Ole Opry. Uneducated, virtually fatherless, an alcoholic in his teens, unlucky at love, Hank mined his experiences to write songs that will live forever. Hemphill explains Williamsí life & gives it the lively telling it deserves.
