Doc Ebersole lives with the ghost of Hank Williams—not just in the figurative sense, not just because he was one of the last people to see him alive, and not just because he is rumored to have given Hank the final morphine dose that killed him.In 1963, ten years after Hank's death, Doc himself is wracked by addiction. Having lost his license to practice medicine, his morphine habit isn't as easy to support as it used to be. So he lives in a rented room in the red-light district on the south side of San Antonio, performing abortions and patching up the odd knife or gunshot wound. But when Graciela, a young Mexican immigrant, appears in the neighborhood in search of Doc's services, miraculous things begin to happen. Graciela sustains a wound on her wrist that never heals, yet she heals others with the touch of her hand. Everyone she meets is transformed for the better, except, maybe, for Hank's angry ghost—who isn't at all pleased to see Doc doing well. A brilliant excavation of an obscure piece of music history, Steve Earle'sI'll Never Get Out of This World Aliveis also a marvelous novel in its own right, a ballad of regret and redemption, and of the ways in which we remake ourselves and our world through the smallest of miracles.

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 & made him a star overnight. A prolonged struggle with drug addiction resulted in jail time in the early 1990s, but Earle's recovery & comeback albums, beginning with the 1995 Grammy-nominated "Train A Comin'," have all been critical & 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 & is affiliated with both Citizens United for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (CUADP) & the Abolitionist Action Committee. He is also a supporter of the Campaign for a Landmine-Free World & the Kensington Welfare Rights Union. He has been the subject of recent profiles in "Esquire" & "Men's Journal" & has appeared on "Nightline" & "CBS Sunday Morning". He is a frequent guest on David Letterman's & Jay Leno's shows.
