Some of you may be familiar with http://www.largeheartedboy.com, some of you might not. If you're not, take some time to play around on it. Along with great music info, the gentleman who runs the site is an avid reader who hosts a fantastic series called "Book Notes," where authors write playlists that could run alongside their books. A few Algonquin authors have been fortunate enough to be asked to write for this column. Below are the links to their essays:

Jayne Pupek: Tomato Girl

Brock Clarke: An Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England

Laila Lalami: Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits

Kirsten Menger-Anderson: Doctor Olaf van Schuler's Brain

Edward Schwarzschild: The Family Diamond

Thanks for the kind words about the series, I have heard from many people who have discovered books through Book Notes.

Look for many more Book Notes essays in the future.

I love the Book Notes essays--what a neat way to marry books and music. This site is one of my favorite new discoveries. For those who haven't read it, do check it out.

A Largeheartedboy is one of my most frequented and favorite sites. Highly recommended for both literature and music related items of interest. He has introduced me to numerous writers and musicians. Go visit immediately !!
