"Crazy Heart just might be the finest country-western novel ever written, bar none." --Houston Post

"A masterpiece. . . . Cobb has created an unforgettable character who engages not only your interest but your emotion...and who proceeds to take you on a roller-coaster ride through his tawdrily tumultuous life." -- Chicago Tribune

Thomas Cobb's riveting novel tells the unforgettable story of a former country music star hoping to take one last shot at a better life.

At the age of fifty-seven--living a life riddled with ex-wives, one night stands, and daily diet of Jack Daniels--Bad Blake is on his last legs. His ticker, his liver, even his pick-up truck are all giving him trouble. A renowned songwriter and "picker" who hasn't recorded in five years, Bad now travels the countryside on gigs that take him mostly to motels and bowling alleys. Enter Jean Craddock, a young journalist sent to interview him after a beautiful concert, and a tentative romance blooms. Can Bad stop living the life of a country-western song and tie a rope around his crazy heart?
