Eleanor Henderson’s Punk Rock Playlist

By Jason Boog Comment

Eleanor Henderson had punk rock legends like Misfits and Minor Threat wailing throughout her debut novel, Ten Thousand Saints. GalleyCat reader Tim Frederick built a punk rock soundtrack for the book on Spotify.

Here’s an excerpt from the novel: “Jude was the one in Converse high-tops, the stars Magic Markered into pentagrams, and he wore his red hair in a devil lock–short in the back and long in the front, in a fin that sliced between his eyes to his chin. Unless you’d heard of the Misfits, not the Marilyn Monroe movie but the horror-rock/glam-punk band, and if you were living in Lintonburg, Vermont, in 1987, you probably hadn’t, you’d never seen anything like it.”
