Song for a Saturday: Broken Bicycles – Tom Waits

I was lucky enough to get a story in the new edition of Drunk on the Moon: A Roman Dalton Anthology. Of course I turned to the original crooner of ‘Drunk on the Moon’ for inspiration and chose a tune from One from the Heart, an unjustly overlooked disc from Waits and the crystal-voiced Crystal Gayle.

‘Broken Bicycles’ takes a look at the collateral damage of crime in The City and how desperation drives people to try mad ways out of apparent hopelessness — even if your only role models come from comic books. Check out the whole collection for more adventures with the werewolf P.I. Great stories and the price is right.
