Largehearted Boy shares mixtape for Unexpected Weather Events story collection

Over at Largehearted Boy, David Gutowski has a Book Notes series in which writers curate songs for their books. I did one to accompany my novel Hezada! I Miss You a few years ago, and luckily, David welcomed a list for my new story collection, Unexpected Weather Events

For this playlist, I chose a song for each story and then explain that relationship in the "liner notes" that accompany each pair. 

Perhaps because I come from the past of making mixtapes, I have twice enjoyed curating these lists, and I hope you enjoy listening to the songs. It pleases me to think about music. The songs I've chosen are especially good for days of coming rain or incoming fog. Just like my stories. 

Find the playlist here:


Unexpected Weather Events is available online and in brick-and-mortar. Please support these locations, especially the one nearest you.
