UK version of Hoskyns biography

The British version of Amazon lists a hardcover version of the upcoming Waits biography Lowside of the Road: A Life of Tom Waits by Barney Hoskyns.

It has a different cover picture than the US version, which is due out on April 14. And a typo in the title of the description.

LOL@'Lowside of the Toad'

Amazon.com has the U.S. version at half the price of the UK one though...

I see the US version has 288 pages, while the UK one has 352. Where could the difference in content come from?

Dr Pod said...

Probably just another error, mircea, a la 'Toad'.

I sent Amazon a request the day I read this post and they corrected the title overnight. Good times.

Thanks, kmartini.

The author writes: The title is Lowside of the Road (as per Waits' original song title) and the book actually weighs in over 600 pages with notes and index. Hope y'all like it.
