The literary journal The Lifted Brow recently asked me and some other writers to put together mixtapes as part of their issue on Music. I love making mixtapes for those I love, including literary journals that I love, so I said yes.
I’ve also embedded my mixtape below. (Note: A special reward awaits those who listen all the way to the end of the mixtape. We writers know that endings are important.)
PS I’ve actually been doing some writing about music lately, which I’ve enjoyed very much. It’s part of the latest piece of fiction that I’ve been working on. My treatment of a particular musical phenomenon that I describe is probably my favourite part of the piece. More news about that piece coming soon… or soon-ish!
