Lou Reed Poetry Book Coming Soon


A new collection of poems from Lou Reed is due out later this year. The set, titled Do Angels Need Haircuts?, will include 12 poems and short stories from the legend and will also include an afterword from his widow Laurie Anderson.

The works are pulled from the Lou Reed Archive, who writes:

"The Lou Reed Archive has been keen to publish some of the rare and unique material from the diverse and extraordinary collection of Lou's life's work, and we decided to start with these poems," archivist Don Fleming told The Guardian.

"Lou was a writer at heart, and during this period he considered giving up music to follow this path. Finding Lou's own cassette tape in the archive, that he recorded at the event, was very exciting because we knew about the reading but had little idea of what he had read. His introductions to the pieces also gave us great insight into his creative process."
