Shorties (An Excerpt from Yael Goldstein-Love’s New Novel, A Profile of PJ Harvey, and more)

Daily book & music news & links shared an excerpt from Yael Goldstein-Love’s novel The Possibilities.

Vogue profiled PJ Harvey.

Harvey is keenly aware of how fashion has shaped her career visually and on stage. But it’s also part and parcel with how she’s grown to view her creative output more generally over the past few years: as something borderless and freeing. “The older I get, the more I stop trying to compartmentalize things, and actually realize that I’m just an artist that makes things, and sometimes the things that I make crossover into each other,” she says. “I’m learning to just let that happen more than try to control it now.”
