Doghouse Roses Steve Earle Secker and Warburg £10, pp207. More than 15 years into his career, after several marriages and a short stint in a federal penitentiary, American country musician Steve Earle's first book - a collection of short stories - consolidates an already brilliant but tumultuous career. An avowed polemicist, Earle first appeared on the Nashville singer-songwriter scene alongside kd lang and Lyle Lovett in the mid Eighties. Early albums like 1986's Guitar Town and 1987's Exit-O quickly established him as an anti-corporate reactionary

Steve Earle does everything he does with intelligence, creativity, passion, and integrity. Doghouse Roses - Steve Earle.

Steve Earle does everything he does with intelligence, creativity, passion, and integrity. In music, these strengths have earned him comparisons to Bruce Springsteen, the ardent devotion of his fans, and the admiration of the media. And Earle does a lot: he is singer, songwriter, producer, social activist, teacher. He’s not only someone who makes great music; he’s someone to believe in. With the publication of his first collection of short stories, Doghouse Roses, he gives us yet another reason to believe.

Steve Earle,like James McMurtry has a literary bent to his music,and in Doghouse Roses there is a musical sense to Earle's literary work. loners,drifters,out of sort folk. I picked up the book again recently,partially out of curiosity as to whether it would hold me a second time.

Fans of Steve Earle's music will recognize many familiar themes in his first collection of short stories, Doghouse Roses. He's not only someone who makes great music; he's someone to believe in.

On first blush, it would seem Steve Earle might need more than a doghouse rose to make up for foisting this book on his fans. By the end, you realize the book 'itself' is a doghouse rose. Steve Earle is a great writer. Songwriter, that is. As a fiction writer, a prose writer, however - well, did I happen to mention he's a great songwriter?

Steve Earle leans hard on his own tough experience as a junkie and jailbird to produce a series of gut-wrenching tales filled with humanity". Time Out. "Doghouse Roses is the real thing, a collection of spare, economical and truly compelling tales, as well-crafted as the songs, and just as moving. The Witness" is as well-paced and urgent as any story I have read in the past several years, and would certainly stand its ground alongside the established masters".

Steve Earle is a great writer. Each story is unique and stands on its own. The Kindle Version isn't broken down into chapters, or sections for each story, so its difficult to go back and find a story.

I came late to Mr. Earle. My musical tastes reeked of nights at the Fillmore and days chasing a California dream. Nashville town and country music history was a dusty museum of whiny hicks and sad hacks. When the music got schooled by some new creators, there was notice to be taken. This book was a pleasure to experience like catching a great set of that new music. Like discovering a piece of shiny silver in an old cigar-box of broken seashells, these stories gleam with the promise of being enjoyment to the unknowing. I collect books and was led to this one by a sly dog that smelled a classic and barked to get tossed a bone. Lately, I have acquired some of Mr. Earle's music, and find that his storytelling on the printed page, without the emotion of the instruments and the voice, reveals his experience more starkly and more pointedly personal. His music is crafted for the reward of the audience; his book is crafted for his own, and the solitary reader's, reward. We shall look forward to the days when Mr. Earle fashions another shining reward for us all.

All the rhythm, soul, inflection, and insight of his music is present in his writing. He has a natural gift as a story teller and the images he creates are utterly convincing and often deeply and surprisingly moving. He's a modern day Steinbeck. He has lived and felt and understood more than most and has left this testimony like some kind of sign post in the road hinting at where he's been and where he might be headed. Go on and be a skeptic. Then read this book.

After finishing "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive," I decided to check out Steve's first book. This is a great set of short stories! I've always enjoyed his music. But music and writing are not necessarily similar art forms. It's a good thing that these are short stories because I'm finding it difficult to put the book down in the middle of one. The characters are like people I know and Steve's writing is heartfelt, genuine, frank and unapologetic. Delightful.
After listening to his I'LL NEVER GET OUT OF THIS WORLD ALIVE this reading was superb I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive
