Pj Harvey - Pj Harvey Keen To Release Book Of Writings

Rocker Pj Harvey is planning to branch out into the literary world and release a book of short stories and prose.
The musician recently took up a post as a guest designer for director Francis Ford Coppola's All-Story magazine and the extracurricular activity has inspired her to showcase some of the paintings and writings she has been working on in her spare time.
She tells Spinner.co.uk, "I'd like to do more because I just moved into doing oil painting as well, which I'm really enjoying and I'd like to spend more time doing that.
"I'm also a keen writer, not just of songs, but of poetry, short prose, short stories. I'd like to release regularly my extraneous works, drawings and writings that aren’t songs, but just other things that I do."
Last month (Apr11), Harvey admitted she was contemplating staging a major art show to display her paintings from over the years, but admitted it would have to "wait until the time feels right".
