Songs are there for the people, to be used by people, in any way they want to use them. So said PJ Harvey and Kate Schatz has taken her at her word. This is a collection of fourteen short stories - each one a cover version of a song on Rid of Me. Each story begins and ends with the first and last line of each song, and many of the remaining song lyrics will appear throughout each story. Brooding, macabre, bloody, erotic, tongue-in-cheek, and violent, these stories are deeply immersed in the language and themes of PJ Harvey's album: perfect for reading along, with your headphones on.
