Tom Waits to Publish Book of Poetry

Tom Waits by Anton Corbijn.

This will probably be a must-have if you're a Tom Waits fan. A planned poetry/photography book collaboration with Michael O'Brien. From the article;

There are no concrete details as to when the book will be published, but the project has reportedly been conceived as a modern version of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, the famous collaboration between writer James Agee and photographer Walker Evans, which documented the hardtack lives of dust bowl sharecroppers and was first published in 1941. Rather than Mid-Western farmers, however, Waits and O’Brien’s book should examine the lives of the homeless.
