This excerpt from A Curious Year in the Great Vivarium Experiment, is from “Chapter 9. The Indian Night.” The excerpt is bookended by songs from the soundtrack to the book. The songs are A Curious Year Part I and A Curious Year Part II, both written and performed by my nephew, Jack Shields, under his band’s name Mojave Goldrush).
Just like the books begins and ends in the same place, so too does the soundtrack when played on repeat. The full soundtrack will be available later this year, as will Mojave Goldrush’s debut album.
