getting pregnant

At nineteen, Björk discovered she was pregnant. She’d been with her poet boyfriend, Thor, for the best part of four years. It was a surprise. She was overjoyed. But then she talked to people, took their advice - "kind of being all brainy," she now says, emphasizing the last word as though there were no worse quality on earth than dry, unimpulsive reason - and scheduled an abortion. And then, on the morning of her appointment, she simply decided not to go.
