Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Steve Earle has taken his considerable narrative talents — already evidenced in a songwriting career spanning three decades — and applied them to the page in DOGHOUSE ROSES, his first story collection. With all the grace, poetry, and passion that has made his music honored around the world, Earle offers eleven stories in this remarkable literary debut. He chronicles the lives of the lost and the lonely — rebels, addicts, outlaws, and drifters — with a voice that is "vigorous, punchy, often profane and more often profound" (The Oregonian).

About the Author

STEVE EARLE is a singer-songwriter who has released ten critically acclaimed albums since his 1986 debut album, Guitar Town, burst onto the Nashville scene and made him a star overnight. A prolonged struggle with drug addiction resulted in jail time in the early 1990s, but Earle’s recovery and comeback albums, beginning wth the 1995 Grammy-nominated Train A Comin’, have all been critical and commercial successes. His latest album is Transcendental Blues. Earle also works on behalf of a number of political causes, which have been the subjects of his songs for decades. In the struggle to end the death penalty, he serves as a board member of the Journey of Hope and is affiliated with both Citizens United for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (CUADP) and the Abolitionist Action Committee. He is also a supporter of the Campaign for a Landmine-Free World and the Kensington Welfare Rights Union. He has been the subject of recent profiles in Esquire and Men’s Journal and has appeared on Nightline and CBS Sunday Morning. He is a frequent guest on David Letterman’s and Jay Leno’s shows.
