Largehearted Boy – Book Notes – “The Fun We’ve Had”

David Gutowski said it best:

In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book. Previous contributors include Bret Easton Ellis, Kate Christensen, Kevin Brockmeier, George Pelecanos, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee Bender, Myla Goldberg, Heidi Julavits, Hari Kunzru, and many others.

I’m excited to be a part of the extensive Largehearted Boy contributors list. My contribution, a book notes entry pertaining to my latest title, “The Fun We’ve Had.” 

The theoretical soundtrack populating the empty spaces of the novel, The Fun We’ve Had, that’s what I’m going to attempt to do here. These are the noises, the sounds, the ambience, the epic crescendos, as well as the depressing and anticlimactic lows that will inevitably occur across the endless purgatorial sea in the book. It both accentuates and masks the voice of the titular sea.
