Peter Duffy is a music writer, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the odd song crops up in the course of the book. You can find some of them handily gathered together on a playlist: The Former Boy Wonder. Some of the songs on it are mentioned or described in the course of the novel, and some are tracks I played to get me in the mood to write particular scenes. TFBW looks at first love, mid-life crisis, fathers and sons, sons and fathers, and long-haul marriage. This playlist is meant to nod in all those directions.
