9780826427786: PJ Harvey's Rid of Me: A Story (33 1/3)

Rid of Me joins Music From Big Pink by John Niven and Meat is Murder by Joe Pernice as one of three fictional titles in the 33 1/3 Series, and tells the story of Kathleen and Mary, two women who find themselves alone in a house in the middle of the dark, forbidden forest that borders their depressed valley town. Amidst a dramatic natural setting, they negotiate their freedom, their pasts, their survival, and each other. Rid of Me is a story of escape and desire, violence and gender, landscape, family, and memory. It's a twisted fairy tale, a queer dystopia/utopia, and a lyrical exploration of kidnapping, dreams, murder, sex, revenge, and love.

Kate Schatz's Rid of Me is at once a wholly original work of fiction and an innovative meditation on one writer's relationship to an album. The album in question is PJ Harvey's 1993 recording Rid of Me, a release noted again and again for its raw sound, dark lyrics, and unabashed presentation of female sexuality, desire, and rage. In her prologue, Schatz states that the book is "not about Rid of Me, but because of it" and the book's 14 chapters (one for each song on the album) use the lyrics, moods, images, and characters to create something entirely different, yet intimately connected to the music.

From the Back Cover:

"Tie yourself to me," she whispered, without turning around, as I snuck up from behind. My boots scraping slightly in the dirt, sweat running into my eye, the salt stinging me, my heart thudding, my dry mouth hanging open, tasting the electricity between us. "No on else." She said it again: "Tie yourself to me." It was no longer a whisper: the words were sure, though slightly slurred....I stared down at the shining top of her black silk head and wanted to howl with joy. She had come.

Rid of Me: A Story is, in the author's words, "not about the album, but because of it." The story concerns Kathleen and Mary, two women who end up in a strange, abandoned cabin in the dark forest that borders their depressed valley town. Through fourteen short chapters that mirror the songs on the album, Kathleen and Mary negotiate their freedom, their pasts, their survival, and each other. The result is a twisted, gripping fairy tale of kidnapping, dreams, murder, sex, revenge, and love.

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Songs are there for the people, to be used by people, in any way they want to use them. (Polly Jean Harvey, 1993) This book takes Polly Jean at her word. Kate Schatz puts together a collection of stories that is weird, dark, and seductive in its portrayals of women, kidnapping, love, sex, isolation and power. 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 piece. Rid of Me lends itself easily and readily to a literary interpretation. Musically, apt comparisons have been made to everything from Beefheart and Patti Smith to vintage Delta Blues and Celtic punk. But lyrically and emotionally, Rid of Me deserves other comparisons: there is the gothic horror of Shirley Jackson and Poe, the confessional pain of Plath, the carnality of NiN, and the sardonic wit of Dorothy Parker. Harvey employs specific literary devices: repetition and allusion as well as recurring tropes, themes and images (size/measurements, bleeding, desire, body parts, skin) and a penchant for myth and archetypes (fire, hair, hands, Mary, the moon, queens, kings). Schatz does the same. The 33 1/3 series is acclaimed for experimenting with different ways of writing about music. This book will bolster that reputation further.
