According to the Las Vegas Mercury, Tom waits is one of the people who contributed a cover blurb for JT LeRoy's novella Harold's End (with illustrations by Cherry Hood and published by Last Gasp Books ).
Tom Waits' quote:
JT’s stories are like stitches, like exit wounds, dispatches, depositions. He is the brilliant, gifted and profound fly on the wall. You’ll need handkerchiefs and Novocain to get through this.
