        Tom Waits’ latest – genius musings, rich and resonant, and that voice gets better and better       

 

What’s the last great book you read?

        Sacred Hunger by Barry Unsworth  - masterpiece of historical fiction, complex and enigmatic moral terrain, brilliant characters

 

What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

        Rodeo

 

What’s your favorite comfort food?

        Shepherd’s Pie – and lots of it.
