From The Heart of Saturday Night through Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards, a rare look at the creative process of the Grammy-winning visionary artist.
Via exclusive interviews with engineers and producers and quoted commentary from Tom Waits himself, this book investigates the artistic process behind his unique sound — a sound which has mutated over his career and proved nearly impossible to mimic, although many have tried. One of the most fascinating singers and songwriters working today and considered by many to be a genius, Waits has ridden his own trends for the better part of 40 years, defying any and all notion of convention outside the context of his own sub-genre. An investigatory thread runs throughout the book, and the treasure trove of information and insight will prove a must for any fan of this most enigmatic and revered of craftsmen.
A complete discography is included.
