Eileen Myles’s poetry and prose are known for their blend of reality and fiction, the sublime and the ephemeral, in which Myles not only lets readers peer into existent places, like the East Village in the iconic Chelsea Girls, but also lifts them into dreams, imbuing the landscapes of their 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 their sardonic, unapologetic, and fiercely intellectual literary voice. Steeped in the culture of New York City, Myles’s stomping grounds and home to their most well-known work, they provide a wide-open lens into a radical life.
