Mr Tumnal has an eclectic taste in music. His music collection is entirely vinyl and (mostly) cassette, with some recent additions on CD, thus, Kathryn buys him an iPod which she has engraved for him:
For your music collection and mine, love Kathryn xxx
For whatever reason, the iPod is never given, but the engraving is perfect to go alongside the playlist of the book. The actual playlist that I used to write the novel comprised some 86 tracks and that’s not counting the 251 song wedding playlist, or the general ‘Writing and Inspiration’ playlist. I’ve whittled it down to the ones that fit best with Mr Tumnal’s story. Some more detailed explanation of the song choices will follow shortly. Until then, it remains at its most eclectic (which is much the same as Louis Tumnal’s mind).
