"A book as exhilarating as his music." -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Hank Williams, the quintessential country music singer and songwriter, lived a life as lonesome, desolate, and filled with sorrow as his timeless songs. From Williams's dirt- poor beginnings as a sickly child to his emergence as a star of the Grand Ole Opry, Lovesick Blues is the definitive biography of the man and his music.

Hemphill comes to his love of Hank honestly. . . . He tells the familiar story with economy and grace. (Garrison Keillor, The New York Times Book Review)

A book as exhilarating as his music. (The Atlanta Journal- Constitution)
