Giveaway - The Day the World Ends - Ethan Coen

April is National Poetry Month! And to celebrate, I have Ethan Coen's new book of poetry - The Day the World Ends - to giveaway. Ethan Coen? Isn't he that movie director.....?

From the publisher Broadway Books:

"From one of the most inventive and celebrated filmmakers of the twentieth century, and co-creator of such classics as Fargo, No Country for Old Men, and True Grit, a collection of poems that offers humor and insight into an artist who has always pushed the boundaries of his craft.

Ethan Coen's screenplays have surprised and delighted international audiences with their hilarious vision and bizarrely profound understanding of human nature. This eccentric genius is revealed again in The Day the World Ends, a remarkable range of poems that are as funny, ribald, provocative, raw, and often touching as the brilliant films that have made the Coen brothers cult legends.

Short, accessible, and nearly the same price as a movie ticket, this new poetry collection is a perfect treat for Coen’s legions of fans.  

When not writing plays, poetry, or short stories, Ethan Coen makes movies with his brother, Joel Coen. After thirteen films, the Coen brothers have one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed bodies of work in the history of cinema."

Curious aren't you? To be entered, simply leave a comment. Or a poem if you're so inclined. Open to US and Canada, ends April 22.

I LOVE his poetry! I had to go to the main branch of the public library in order to read his first book of poems "The Drunken Driver Has the Right of Way"... the limericks are the best! Hope to read his latest work soon!
