Jim Carroll’s Last Book


Poet and musician Jim Carroll was putting the finishing touches on a novel when he passed away on September 11, 2009. Next week Viking will publish that novel, The Petting Zoo. This is the music video of The Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died,” which appeared on the soundtrack of the 1995 film version of his autobiography, The Basketball Diaries, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
