If you’ve had the pleasure of reading Sally Rooney’s magnificent novel, Normal People, you will understand why creating a companion playlist for this book was a necessity. While the plot and setting are captivating, what really draws you in is its power to stir strong emotions in the reader like the best songs do for listeners. Rooney draws her characters so intimately that we’re not merely observers, but we feel their happiness and devastation, their triumph and loss. The novel envelops you in emotion in the same way as your favorite song or album.
