Description: A highly personal panorama of the twentieth century as seen and experienced by one of the most remarkable fictional characters in recent literature: 102-year-old bluesman Coley Williams. It is at once a wildly inventive epic, a heartfelt testament to the people and places of a vanishing era, and an invaluable contribution to the literature of music and popular culture that will fascinate blues fans, history buffs, and general readers alike.

Williams's vividly recounted anecdotes introduce us to the pantheon of blues legends whose paths he crossed: Charley Patton, Tommy Johnson, Bessie Smith, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ma Rainey, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, the immortal Robert Johnson, and even the young Elvis Presley. Raucous, rambunctious, and often downright dangerous, these larger-than-life musicians, singers and all-around rabble-rousers live again in Williams's wonderfully colorful recollections. This is the blues. This is America. This is a masterpiece.
