More on Jim Carroll

Alex Williams wrote a great article in the Styles section of the Sunday New York Times about Jim Carroll. It’s a n interesting look at the man he was and his more recent life, which for those of us who didn’t know him has largely remained hidden from view because we always think of him as a younger punk poet/musician.

It does mention “The Petting Zoo” his novel in progress, which was apparently in final edits and Viking  plans to publish the novel posthumously, possibly next year. I feel a little bad about being excited about the novel given that the man just died.
