Overview

Tom Waits has spent 40 years imbuing popular music with his savagely lyrical voice, his abrupt sarcasm, and a thin layer of tenderness. That enigmatic individual and the labyrinth of his professional journey are the object of meticulous study carried out by Barney Hoskyns: all of his public disasters have been recorded, and none of his secrets and mysteries has escaped the author’s severe scrutiny.

 

Tom Waits lleva cuarenta años poniendo una voz salvajemente lírica, un sarcasmo no menos abrupto y una capa de vaporosa ternura en algunos rincones antes inexplorados por la música popular. Ese enigmático individuo y el laberinto de su trayectoria profesional son el objeto de la meticulosa inspección emprendida por Barney Hoskyns: todas sus peripecias públicas han quedado diligentemente consignadas y ninguno de los enigmas privados ha escapado al severo escrutinio.
