    "A quiet masterpiece"

    I must admit this book wasn't really what I signed up to. I expected this to read like a Hollywood screenplay - predictable but entertaining. This is in fact a brutally honest depiction of a man who has wrecked his life. At first I thought I was reading a fairly bog standard cliche of a hard drinking and smoking country and western singer who enjoyed success in the past but has blown it all. Bad Blake has been married five times and spends most of his money on alimony and booze. His health is wrecked, he is overweight and seems to be at the point of physical collapse. Despite all of this he still seems to have a way with women and this is a story where you think he may find salvation through the love of a good woman. The author had reeled me in, but then the story takes a much deeper turn when it delves into Bad's past life and his marriage to Marge. This is where you really get to know about Bad's character and why he ended up the way he is.

    I thought this was one of the best accounts of alcoholism I have ever read and the ending was incredible. This is a thought provoking story of how we can all be the authors of our own destruction.
