Author Playlists

Amy Grace Loyd’s Playlist for Her Novel “The Pain of Pleasure”

“The songs in the playlist for The Pain of Pleasure are not strictly songs that influenced the writing of the new novel—though some very much did. Instead, its playlist emerges from the story itself, from its foreground and background. The cast of characters use these pieces throughout to amplify events, to let go, heal and in one instance, to seduce, manipulate.”
