I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems


A choice of exciting verse, together with either new poems and loved favorites, from the distinguished poet, smooth cult icon, and writer of Chelsea Girls.

Eileen Myles’ paintings is understood for its combination of truth and fiction, the elegant and the ephemeral. Her paintings opens readers to remarkable new issues of regular locations, just like the East Village in her iconic Chelsea Girls, and invitations them into lush—and occasionally horrid—dream worlds, imbuing the landscapes of her writing with the vividness and effort of fantasy.

I needs to be dwelling Twice brings jointly decisions from the poet’s past paintings with a suite of daring new poems that mirror her sardonic, unapologetic, and fiercely highbrow literary voice. Steeped within the tradition of recent York urban, Myles’ milieu, I needs to be residing Twice is a prism refracting a thorough global and a compelling life.
