Small Change: A Life of Tom Waits by Patrick Humphries
VINTAGE UK IMPORT PAPERBACK  OMNIBUS PRESS
Nice copy with some light wear to cover. Price sticker on back and inscription on one of the title pages.
Small Change, the first biography of this unique performer, tracks Waits from his early days as a pizza chef and fireman right up to the masterful albums such as Rain Dogs and Frank's Wild Years that brought Waits critical acclaim in the eighties. Visions of Waits the actor, Waits the composer, Waits on tour and wonderful photos all add up to a welcome portrait of the music that has influenced U2, Elvis Costello, and The Pogues, and of the man whose ravaged voice and whiskey wisdom have shown us the high life, the low life, and all that lies between. - Bookshop Apocalypse
