"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. Earle takes risks; he cares about his characters, and he cares about language. "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" ( Scotsman)
"Heartfelt, romantic, they are thoughtful and genuinely hardbitten. An impressive and engaging debut" ( Times Literary Supplement)
"Meticulously crafted character studies that assess and re-assess the human condition...consolidates an already brilliant but tumultuous career. In keeping with another great chronicler of the American male, John Steinbeck" ( Observer)
Steve Earle is widely regarded as one of the finest narrative songwriters in the world. These stories, peopled with addicts, hitchhikers, singers, Vietnam vets and drug smugglers, reflect the many facets of the man and the hard-fought struggles, defeats and eventual triumphs he has experienced in a career spanning three decades.
