Eileen Myles is sometimes claimed to be America's best-known unofficial poet. Her latest book is a poet's novel titled "Inferno." It is a poignant memoir that recounts her experiences as a lesbian female poet living in New York.
In her book, "Sorry Tree" she describes “some nature” as well as the transmigration of souls from the east coast to the west. Bust Magazine calls Myles "the rock star of modern poetry" and Holland Cotter in The New York Times describes her as "a cult figure to a generation of post-punk females forming their own literary avant garde."
