Crazy Heart: A Novel by Thomas Cobb

[Cobbs] picture of the scraggly underside of Western music is brutally convincing.|Crazy Heart is a beautiful book..The characters are cut cleanly out of America..Bad Blake is a man you will not soon forget.|You can almost hear the whining twang of a pedal steel guitar and the droning of a mournful singer while reading Crazy Heart.|Thomas Cobbs marvelous first novel doesnt just play on your heartstrings, it breaks them.|A measure of Thomas Cobbs talent is that he can make Bad Blakes story amusing even as we watch him fall. Bad is entirely sympathetic, and this crazy heart is vivid; the milieu is as resonant as a steel guitar, and the plot moves along without skipping a beat.|Thomas Cobb has written a bitter, witty psychological profile of an aging genius that is also a wonderful celebration of country music. Bad Blake lives at the poor end of the rainbow, but youll never forget him. Crazy Heart is a splendid achievement.|Thomas Cobb has produced a piercing, keenly observed chronicle of modern Americana, getting across the current mores and attitudes as experience by C&W musician Blake.|In producing as nearly a masterpiece as the subject has yet attracted, Cobb seems to have triumphed..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.|Crazy Heart just might be the finest country-western novel ever written, bar none.|This is a heartfelt book: the descriptions of writing songs and playing them, of finding love and ruining it, of sweet, painful memories. Theres nothing startling in the plot or the characters, but they are alive.|Blakes dedication to, and integrity towards, his country music is more than matched by Cobbs moving, respectful evocation of the world of country music, and the life and times of Bad Blake.
