Eileen Myles: TOP TEN BOOKS
Courtesy of Shae Detar
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.
