Curran's 'Governor of Goat Hill' soon to reach area bookstores

The saga of reporter Eddie Curran's coverage of Gov. Don Siegelman's administration is, at long last, between covers and will soon be available for purchase, according to the veteran Press-Register newshound.

The book is titled "The Governor of Goat Hill: Don Siegelman, the Reporter who Exposed his Crimes, and the Hoax that Suckered some of the Top Names in

"The book is finished and, or so am led to believe, will be available in late December or early January," Curran informs in an email early Friday morning. 

The book is not so much about
Siegelman as it is about covering him,
his administration and all that came
to entail, Curran notes.

Curran's website lists options for
buying the book as follows:

"Considering my patience level at this point, the first signing may occur on my porch in midtown Mobile, as soon as my order arrives," says Curran.

"However, until the book becomes, in the publishing parlance, 'live,' it won't be available anywhere or even possible to order, since it won't yet show in booksellers computers as even existing," Curran wrote. "I will announce on the site as soon as it does go 'live.'"

Excerpts from the book are included on Curran's website.

Siegelman had no comment on the book's release.

Curran has been on sabbatical from the Press-Register while working on the book. He has not yet rejoined the newspaper.
