Clint Hutzulak, novelist, Victoria


Novel excerpts + novel soundtracks

From the first day he began writing the novel, Clint imagined a soundtrack to accompany it. Like a soundtrack album from a movie, THE BEAUTIFUL DEAD END soundtracks can be enjoyed whether you've read the book or not. The instrumental music isn't intended to accompany particular sections of the book, it's not a 'read-along with walt disney' type of listening experience.

A collector of soundtracks (many for movies he hasn't yet seen), Clint Hutzulak regards the album as evocative of the ambiance created by the writing of the novel. Headphones recommended.
