Autor: Eileen Myles
Publisher: Wave Books (2007)
Eileen Myles has written thousands of poems since they gave their first reading at CBGB in 1974. BUST magazine calls them “the rock star of modern poetry” and The New York Times says they are “a cult figure to a generation of post-punk females forming their own literary avant garde.”
Myles’ trademark punk-lesbian sensibility and intimate knowledge of poetic tradition are at work in this eighth collection, where every love poem is political, and every political poem is, ultimately, about love.
“One of the savviest and most restless intellects in contemporary literature—honest, jokey, paranoid, sentimental, mean, lyrical, tough, you name it.”
