‘I Knew Inevitably It Would Betray You.’ James Taylor on Avoiding the Trap of Celebrity

At first, I confronted my lack of experience with sober sex in a healthy manner– by avoiding it and crying all the time. I avoided it because I didn’t want to know someone intimately, without a filter. As for the crying, it was ...
