The Official KILLING THE MURNION DOGS Playlist

Joe Wilkins, author of the poetry collection Killing the Murnion Dogs, has created a corresponding playlist as part of Largehearted Boy’s Book Notes series. Joe writes “Though I’m no musician (they made me play the cymbal in junior-high band because I couldn’t read music), it seems to me that poems and songs, or at least the ones that I most admire, often work the same way: they amplify the moment; they jump and cut through narrative; they twist the edges of things, pull strange details into focus.” Click here to see which songs he selects, and here to buy a copy of Killing the Murnion Dogs so you can read along.
