List – Recommended Book and Music Pairings

Every once in a while I will discover a book and an album (or albums) at the same time, creating an impromptu soundtrack out of coincidence. Here are some examples of works that will be inexorably linked forever more. For me, at least.

On Beauty, Zadie Smith / Necima, Lia Ices

The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger / Return to Cookie Mountain, TV on the Radio

The Devil in the White City, Erik Larson / Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone, The Walkmen

The Book of Illusions, Paul Auster / Our Endless Numbered Days, Iron and Wine

The Magus, John Fowles / Get Yr Blood Sucked Out, Viva Voce

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Klay, Michael Chabon / Roots & Crowns, Califone

The Millennium Trilogy, Stieg Larsson / The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night, The Besnard Lakes
