Description

- The Year of the Blues reaches fever pitch in fall 2003 with the theatrical release (and airing on PBS) of seven documentary films, each by a noted feature director (Martin Scorsese, Wim Wenders, Charles Burnett, Mike Figgis, and Clint Eastwood among them) and the release on CD of several major new blues compilations.- Peter Guralnick, celebrated for his bestselling two-volume biography of Elvis Presley, Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love, is a master of narrative who knows the world of American roots music better than any other writer.- NIGHTHAWK BLUES was first published in hardcover in 1980 (Seaview Books) and subsequently in paperback (Thunder's Mouth Press). Both editions have long been unavailable.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 01, 1988 – This is the story of Theodore Roosevelt Jefferson, known professionally as the Screaming Nighthawk, a guitarist and blues singer who is growing old with the century. PW found that ``the novel catches very honestly the unique flavor of a black musician's life, a kind of melancholy swan song.''
