I always build elaborate playlists when I’m working on a book — but I got CARRIED AWAY on the Eleanor & Park playlists. I made mixed tapes (with two sides) for both main characters.
You can listen to the playlists and read my director’s commentary here. Or you can listen to all my book playlists on Spotify. (There are even playlists for books that aren’t out yet.)
Her annotated playlist really is like having a director’s commentary for the book. If (like me) you’re somewhat desperate to spend even more time in the company of those characters, and to think about what their words and actions meant, and how their creator thought about them while creating them, then guess what? You can.
