Shorties (Liam Gallagher, Antonya Nelson, and more)

Liam Gallagher of Oasis talks to the New York Post about his new clothing line.

Gallagher, 37, says he’s been into clothes since he was a teenager, mainly to impress girls. Back then, his fashion statements involved Sergio Tacchini track suits. Even after Oasis became the biggest band in the world, Gallagher says he always wore his own clothes onstage and in public. He detests fussy looks, and once took a shot at bands that employed stylists, saying, “U2? There’s no way you bought that jacket is there, Bono? Coldplay, they’re at it too.”

The Nervous Breakdown shares the title story from Antonya Nelson's new short fiction collection, Nothing Right.

The Independent profiles author Jim Crace.

Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates discusses the band's resurgence in popularity with the Boston Globe.

The Nervous Breakdown offers an excerpt from Danielle Trussoni's new novel, Angelology.
