I am one of those Luddites who doesn’t even own a smart phone, a Kindle, a Nook, or a whatever, but I do wonder what would it be like if novels on digital devices had a sound track. Maybe such things already exist. If they do, then Charles Foran’s novel, Carolan’s Farewell , should be paired with the harp music in The Carolan Album by Máire Ní Chathasaigh & Chris Newman. It would be like the perfect pairing of wine and cheese, in much the same way that Beaujolais goes with Camembert.
