Wild years giveaway closed

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 now.

I am curious who were these fans
from Lithuania, so if you are one
of them drop me a line at
We could have a drink in Vilnius some time.

John in Clinton Township, MI! That's where I am, too, and I was surprised to see my hometown listed here. Hey, John--maybe we can share that hard-won copy of yours. ;)
