The US edition of “The Upgrade” — my memoir about how getting drunk in hotels nearly killed me — is published on March 10th. I’m doing a reading at Bookpeople in Austin to coincide with South by Southwest. You should come.

Right now, though, only two people have copies of the book: my publisher and me. My author copies just arrived and are sitting in a pile on my desk.

Sarah has very kindly offered to run an extract from the book here on Pando this time next week, but in the meantime I have three spare copies to give away. I’ll even sign them if you like.

No clever questions or contest rules or anything. Just post a comment, giving some kind of reason why you should get a copy of the book. I’ll pick the best three in a couple of days and send over the books early next week.
