I'll never get out of this world alive

In 1963, ten years after he may have given Hank the morphine shot that killed him, Doc has lost his license. Living in the red-light district of San Antonio, he performs abortions and patches up the odd knife wound to feed his addiction. But when Graciela, a young Mexican immigrant, appears in the neighborhood in search of Doc's services, miraculous things begin to happen. Everyone she meets is transformed for the better, except, maybe, for Hank's angry ghost, who isn't at all pleased to see Doc doing well.

  • "Ein Roman voller uralter Weisheiten und unvergesslicher Figuren, bittersüss wie ein Countrysong Doc war einmal ein erfolgreicher Arzt, jetzt schlägt er sich ohne Zulassung in San Antonio, Texas, mit illegalen Abtreibungen durch. Seit sein enger Freund und berühmtester Patient Hank Williams, der grösste Countrymusiker aller Zeiten, mit einer Mischung aus Alkohol und Morphium im Blut auf dem Rücksitz seines Cadillacs aus dem Leben glitt, plagen Doc schwere Schuldgefühle und ein hartnäckiger Begleiter: Hanks zänkischer und ruheloser Geist, der ständig seine ungeteilte Aufmerksamkeit fordert. Als das Mädchen Graciela in Docs Leben tritt, ist Hank also überhaupt nicht begeistert. Zudem passieren, seit sie da ist, seltsame Dinge: Prostituierte, die zu Docs besten Kundinnen gehören, geben ihren Beruf auf, Wunden heilen wie von selbst. Doch damit wird Doc mehr öffentliches Interesse zuteil, als er sich wünschen kann ... "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" ist ein so ergreifender wie komischer Roman, und die aussergewöhnliche Aufarbeitung eines legendären Stücks Musikgeschichte."
  • "Doc Ebersole lives with the ghost of Hank Williams - not just in the figurative sense, not just because Doc was one of the last people to see him alive, and not just because Doc is rumoured to have given Hank the final morphine dose that killed him. In 1963, ten years after Hank's death, Doc is himself wracked by addiction. Having lost his licence to practise medicine, his morphine habit isn't as easy to support as it used to be. So he lives in a rented room in the red-light district on the south side of San Antonio, performing abortions and patching up the odd knife or gunshot wound. But when Graciela, a young Mexican immigrant, appears in the neighbourhood in search of Doc's services, miraculous things begin to happen. Graciela sustains a wound on her wrist that never heals, yet she heals others with the touch of her hand. Everyone she meets is transformed for the better, except, maybe, for Hank's angry ghost - who isn't at all pleased to see Doc doing well."
