A Hard-Boiled Hillbilly Tale
By Pharoah Cain.
This Nashville thriller offers a rarely seen glimpse of Music City through a host of characters far removed from the mainstream of country music.
Lyrical, moody, sometimes brutal, Pharoah Cain's story is not the typical Nashville fare of Opry dreams and record deals but rather belongs in the realm of Americana, Noir, Hard-Boiled, Pulp and Action Mystery.
If you enjoy reading Cormac McCarthy, James Crumley, James Lee Burke and Elmore Leonard - Django's Tunetown Shuffle should be on your must-read list!
David Hightower's lyrically expansive meditation on the whims of fate and the unpredictability of the human condition fill the pages of The Hanging Man Dreams with thrilling music and mesmerizing imagery. - from the Introduction by Aberjhani , author of I Made My Boy Out of Poetry and Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance.

Ever wondered what it's like to be on the road in a Rock'nRoll Band?
â€śTommy Womack is brilliant.
Even the stories he makes
up are true.â€ť - Todd Snider
"In 1985, three other guys and I -- in Kentucky, of all places -- formed a band, hitched our sled to the rock and roll dream and screamed mush from the pits of our souls. We had nothing going for us save a vehement, greasy, turbo-psychotic vision of how things might turn out, and we went for it. It is good to pursue an outlandish dream. Latch on to the wild dogs. Grab that whip and yee-the-hell-hah! Eventually the sled comes out from under you, and from that point on, you either run like hell or you get your face dragged all over God's creation, scraping on rocks and bouncing off the sides of trees."
