Audible Editor Reviews

Dubbed "the rock star of modern poetry", Eileen Myles’ presents a deeply personal fictionalized memoir that mirrors Dante’s Divine Comedy in overall structure but injects it - as evidenced by an eighty-plus page passage written as a grant application - with a dose of the avant-garde in its portrayal of a bohemian poet finding her artistic and sexual identity in fertile creative ground of the New York City underground from the '70’s through the '90’s.

Myles’s performance of her own work imbues it with a startling vulnerability and emotional resonance that is rare to find in an audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

From its beginning - “My English professor’s ass was so beautiful” - to its end - “You can actually learn to have grace. And that’s heaven” - poet, essayist, and performer Eileen Myles’ chronicle transmits an energy and vividness that will not soon leave its listeners. Her story of a young female writer, discovering both her sexuality and her own creative drive in the meditative and raucous environment that was New York City in its punk and indie heyday, is engrossing, poignant, and funny. This is a voice from the underground that redefines the meaning of the word.

    "So major."

    I loved listening to this. Totally stellar. Eileen Myles' writing it totally genius on the page, but then with her voice it's Nexf Level. Recommended
