EILEEN MYLES reads from her new collection of poetry I MUST BE LIVING TWICE

I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems 1975-2014 (Ecco Press)

Eileen’s poetry and fiction is known for its blend of reality and fiction, the sublime and the ephemeral, in which Myles not only lets her readers peer into existent places—notably the East Village, where she lives—but also lifts them into dreams, imbuing the landscapes of her writing with the vividness and energy of fantasy.

I Must Be Living Twice brings selections from the poet’s previous work together with a set of bold new poems, through which Myles continues to refine her sardonic, unapologetic, and fiercely intellectual literary voice. Steeped in the culture of New York City, Myles’ stomping grounds and the home of her most well-known work, she provides a wide open lens into a radical life.

Eileen Myles has published more than a dozen books of poetry, art journalism, and fiction. She has been the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship, a Warhol/Creative Capital Grant and a 2014 Foundation for Contemporary Art Grant. She lives in New York.
