    Eileen Myles

    Top Ten Books

    Eileen Myles, the poet and “loudmouthed lesbian, which means mainstream invisible,” as she described herself to the New York Times, is hardly invisible anymore — when the character of Cherry Jones is based on you in a Golden Globe-winning series (Transparent), invisibility tends to fall away. Combine the current recognition with a 1992 presidential race (Myles ran as an “openly female” write-in candidate), 19 books, four Lambda Book Awards, a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Andy Warhol/Creative Capital Arts Writers grant, chances are Myles won’t fall out of the spotlight any time soon.

    Below are Eileen Myles’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
