There is always a song in my head, a spontaneous soundtrack of sorts, shedding light on whatever I do: Snoop Dogg and Alanis Morisette’s lyrics mimic Dedalus and Bloom’s antics; Bob Marley’s Babylon System and RATM’s Killing in the Name were my anthems for Animal Farm; I listen to Michael Nyman’s Piano to get in the mood for Atonement... So why not include ‘that song in my head/on my iPod’ in my posts? It is an integral part of my reading process. Of everything I do.
The next book in line is The Adventures of Augie March. So guess which song is in my head. Come on, sing it with me,
