For what it's worth, I started a reading list over in the MK Discussion thread of MK songs inspired by books or short stories.  It is by no means comprehensive, so go over there and add to it.  I did include this song, as mentioned by Mark in the interview.

I just finished with reading "I could read the sky". A beautiful, but sad book. It's obvious that MK feels attracted by it, there are so many parallels to his songwriter topics/style. And also the music takes a big part. I've now certainly a better understanding of this song, actually it sums up many topics of the novel. A good read and a good addition to the song!
