This week history was made in the Book Notes series. When I posted Peter Straub's music playlist for his new novel, A Dark Matter, he joined his daughter Emma Straub (who contributed an essay for her novella Fly-Over State last year) as the first father and child in the feature. These two talented writers join brothers Austin and Lev Grossman as the only other set of immediate family members to participate in the Book Notes series.
