    Heidi told me over email she was working on a book project with Sheila Heti, and I giggled into my inbox and replied seriously: “How very, very fun.” It’s better. Leanne Shapton is involved, the project is about style—which writers don’t much talk about but also obviously don’t ignore—and features women (and maybe some men) who are interesting both aesthetically-and-otherwise. The announcement below doesn’t say whether Toni Morrison, above, will make an appearance among the pages.

Believer editors Sheila Heti and Heidi Julavits, and Believer regular Leanne Shapton, are working on a book together titled Women in Clothes, about women’s relationship to style and why women wear what they wear. Contributors include Miranda July, Zadie Smith, Eileen Myles and others. If you would like to contribute by filling out a survey (the book is being built up from these surveys) please visit this website. You needn’t care about clothes, or be a writer, or consider yourself fashionable, or even think about these things often, to contribute.

It took 20 years, but Dylan and Kelly are in love again. The New York Post confirms that “Beverly Hills 90210” alums Jennie Garth and Luke Perry are an item. The sparks apparently started to fly when the pair reunited to film a commercial for Old Navy. (via Kelly Finally Picks Dylan | Pat’s Papers)

Gahd FINALLY.

    When freedom overwhelms, and we die. Yesterday I read the story of a German squirrel who got his head trapped in a manhole cover! He was rescued by the Fire Department, who used olive oil to free him from his creepy trap (his head was popping through the cover, his body dangling underneath) and set him free in a nearby park. Alas, the shock was too much and the squirrel perished anyway, despite that there was not a scratch on him.

    Listen to Zadie Smith read this Frank O’Hara poem. It might do something to the rest of your day, like a big melancholy umbrella, but that can’t be helped.

    [Audio] Zadie Smith reads Frank O’Hara’s poem “Animals” (quite beautifully, we might add): I wouldn’t want to be faster / or greener than now if you were with me O you / were the best of all my days

I’ve been harping the equivalent for years, but was never smart enough to think of it visually.
