Warren Zevon was one messed-up dude--but a true genius. This audio biography of the Southern California songwriter is justifiably painful to listen to, despite Fleet Cooper's excellent narration (though Cooper needs to do better at pronouncing the names of rock stars). Zevon was an alcoholic self-destructive artist, a terrible friend, and a worse husband, but when his genius shone through, it was blinding. The audiobook goes into incredible detail about his life and loves, successes and failures. It's too bad it doesn't come with a soundtrack, but that's what YouTube is for. Just try to listen to "Keep Me in Your Heart," the last song he recorded just days before his death from lung cancer, without choking up. M.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
