Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had driven six hours from Manhattan to interview Mark, a farmer who was growing the kind of local organic food that more and more people wanted to eat. I was not disgusted but enlivened by what we were doing. I was fascinated by the hard white purse of the stomach, the neat coil of intestines, and the lacy white caul fat. #2 I went back to the farm the next morning to rake rocks in the tomatoes with Mark’s assistant Michael. It took two hours to pick all the rocks out of the soil, and I was sore from the previous day’s exertions. #3 I was not a great cook at the time, but I was a big fan of good food. I appreciated it, but I didn’t have a steady relationship with it. Food was more like a series of one-night stands for me. I was not sure the oven in my small studio was functional, since in the seven years I’d lived there, I’d never used it. #4 The food was delicious, but the crew was not impressed. Food is the first wealth, and if you grow it right, you feel insanely rich no matter what you own.

When Warren Zevon died in 2003, he left behind a rich catalog of dark, witty rock 'n' roll classics, including "Lawyers, Guns and Money," "Excitable Boy," and the immortal "Werewolves of London." He also left behind a fanatical cult following and veritable rock opera of drugs, women, celebrity, genius, and epic bad behavior. As Warren once said, "I got to be Jim Morrison a lot longer than he did." Narrated by his former wife and longtime co-conspirator, Crystal Zevon, this intimate and unusual oral history draws on interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stephen King, Bonnie Raitt, and numerous others who fell under Warren's mischievous spell. Told in the words and images of the friends, lovers, and legends who knew him best, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead captures Warren Zevon in all his turbulent glory.
