By contrast she looked as if she was going for a coffee in the student union. But pop abhors a vacuum, so the image she got lumped with was of an earnest young folk singer who was too po-faced to play the game.
In truth she was not immune to the pressures of success. By her third album, Days of Open Hand , released in , she felt trapped by industry expectation. Now that seems really ridiculous. Subsequently her sales have steadily diminished, though she retains a hardcore of devoted fans. Although she continued to produce acclaimed works like Reflections in a Golden Eye and the collection The Balad of the Sad Cafe , she began to fall out of fashion towards the end of her career, and when she died from a brain haemorrhage at the age of 50, she had been supplanted in the public imagination by other southern writers such as Harper Lee, Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams.
But after developing rheumatic fever, she took up writing seriously. Often bracketed in the genre of southern gothic, McCullers wrote about her characters with an acute appreciation for human diversity and vulnerability.

Volumes 2, 3 and 4 of the Close-Up albums included previously unrecorded material; Volumes 2 and 3 each included one new collaboratively written song, while Volume 4 included three songs that Vega had written years earlier, but had not previously gotten around to recording. In all, Vega's Close-Up series features 60 re-recorded songs and five new compositions, representing about three-quarters of her lifetime songwriting output.
While performing live, Vega and long-term collaborator Gerry Leonard began to introduce a number of new songs into the setlist, including the live favorite "I Never Wear White". Over the course of a year, the songs were completed and recorded in a live-studio setting with the help of a number of guests. At the age of nine she began to write poetry.
