With a voice that Pitchfork has called "as scratchy as a three-day beard yet as supple and pliable as moccasin leather," former Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age vocalist Mark Lanegan draws frequent comparisons to wounded masters of doom like Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Leonard Cohen.

I Am the Wolf gives fans a rare and candid glimpse into the inner workings of a living--and singular--rock legend.

Editorial Reviews

"Mark Lanegan hasgained an ardent worldwide audience for his varied musical projects, mainly hisepic solo work since the early '90s. He is one of the very few left with adarkness and mystique that seldom sees light, nor is the veil often lifted fromwhat lies beneath. I Am the Wolf will give his fans a first-ever glimpseinto the brilliant mind behind Mark's lyrics; chapters written with the smarteconomy of wordage we are used to from him in song, but with a humor and candorthat many will see here for perhaps the first time. As a fan of great scribessuch as Cormac, Ernest H., and Gay Talese, this book will go to the top shelfof my home library."--Duff McKagan,Guns N' Roses, author of It's So Easy and How to Be a Man
