After decades as a steady fixture on the New York poetry scene, and author of some 20 books of poetry, fiction and criticism, Eileen Myles had a rebirth of sorts. First came the 2015 film Grandma, featuring Myles’s poetry and starring Lily Tomlin as an indomitable lesbian poet. Then came the Golden Globe-winning TV series Transparent. One of the characters is based on Myles and their poetry is recited by various characters. Instant fame resulted. Their poetry collection I Must Be Living Twice came out at the same time. Not one to be easily categorized, their latest book is Afterglow (a dog memoir), in which they mourn their beloved confidante, their pit bull Rosie. You’ll enjoy this original, hilarious and valiant trailblazer.
