The giveaway is now closed.
I counted 243 entries. A lot of them from the US, but also from Germany, New Zealand, Spain, France, Canada, Lithuania,... Some of them begging, others short and to the point. A few without an address and lots subtly pointing out their reading my blog every day. I also noted a lot of you really really *need* this book, others just entered for the fun of it. None of that really mattered: Jarlath's innocent hand picked five winners out of the virtual hat.
So, ECW Press will be sending out a copy of Wild Years: The Music and Myth of Tom Waits to Chuck (Houston, TX), Michael (Boulder, CO), John (Clinton Township, MI), Rachel (Cambridge, MA) and Stefan (Mechelen, Belgium).
To all the others: better luck next time. And I've noticed the book is also available on Amazon.com now.
