About the Show
An undeniable, unclassifiable and prolific talent, Eileen Myles writes poetry, fiction (most famously, Chelsea Girls), non-fiction and art criticism. Myles was a protege of Allen Ginsberg and today is a hero to the likes of Maggie Nelson and Chris Kraus.
Myles’s latest book is Afterglow (a dog memoir). It’s a hilarious, fabulist and eloquent meditation on the life and death of the poet’s own pet dog, Rosie. ‘At the most literal level, poetry is my politics,’ Myles has said. Find out why and how with host Quinn Eades in May.
Hares & Hyenas will be our bookseller at this event.
This event will be Auslan interpreted.
