Waters’ house is clean, but cluttered. “I don’t think I’m a hoarder, but I’m not a minimalist, as you can see,” he cracks. Artwork lines every wall, and there are piles of books everywhere. He writes that he owns 8,089 titles, and one can’t help but notice the huge coffee table book of Tom of Finland prominently displayed.
