Reviews

Her work is hard to describe, best encountered on its own terms; suffice to say it combines frankness and beauty in a truly original way. The Guardian
Myles has long been a steady presence on the New York poetry scene...With the publication of this new and selected volume, which covers her 40-year career, she has become the toast of the town and the poetry world at-large. Publishers Weekly
Myles is a big deal, a rock star, sort of like the Patti Smith of contemporary poetry. . . . Myles is relentlessly casual, and even joyful. She has a good time journeying through Hell, and like a hip Virgil, she s happy to show us the way. NPR"

"The reissue, after 17 years, creates a strange sort of time vortex, a double-lens of perspective, in which Myles is looking back on the self that wrote the book, who is in turn looking back on the self in the story." --Helena Fitzgerald, Rolling Stone
