Customer Review

on 2 February 2011
This is an excellent and comprehensive career biography of Tom Waits. It is exceptionally well researched, and well-written from the viewpoint of a fan. However the fact that Hoskyns is a fan doesn't prevent him from being critical and objective. He also resists the temptation to speculate that many biographers succumb to, preferring to stick largely to information that is in some way verifiable, or at least backed up by sources close to Waits. For Tom Waits fans and fanatics alike this is a very enlightening and entertaining book.
