Sometimes you find a story that moves you in such a way that you never knew was possible.
The song that stuck in my head, and is my most listened when I read this book, is Sufjan Steven’s ‘For the widows in Paradise, for the fatherless in Ypsilanti’. This song feels like it fits right into the time period this story takes place, after the first World War. When the soldiers that had survived went home and had to live with the nightmares and bad dreams for the rest of their lives. Please give it a listen while you read the rest of this post. I have no rights of the song, all rights go to Sufjan Stevens.
