Largehearted Boy, Gina Nutt's musical playlist for Night Rooms | 4/21/2021
In the Book Notes series from David Gutowski's Largehearted Boy, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book. In Gina Nutt's own words: "The essays in Night Rooms splice personal history with horror film imagery. It’s a moody book filled with dreamy detours, lyrical interludes, movie night flickers, and reflections on 'final girls.' Theme songs and soundtracks can hinge our hearts to films we remember. In that spirit, I’ve compiled the following playlist, which embodies the book’s emotional landscape." Check it out!
