About the Author

Eileen Myles was named the 2010 Shelley Memorial Award winner, with Kenneth Irby, by the Poetry Society of America, received the 2011 Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction for her novel Inferno. She has published over a dozen books of fiction, poetry and plays and has been a major figure in New York's literary scene for decades.


"Myles is a poet with a history who writes about history, her personal history and our political history, and how the two intertwine and can't be separated, even if we might want them to." --Kathleen Rooney, Open Letters

"Sorry, Tree is a...funny title for a book. Especially for a book of poetry, that nervous species of writing that sometimes wonders whether it's worth the paper it's printed on. And especially for a book by Eileen Myles, whose poetry -whether it's about being lovesick or on a boat full of barfing people or surrounded by conservative zealots - is the opposite of apologetic. Historically speaking, Myles is the last stop of the New York School and the beginning of punk-rock poetry." --Brenden Kiley, The Stranger

"Myles' poems feel as though they were written while moving and they're good. The poems travel distances in line breaks and between words. The language has a pulse..." --Gina Myers, Octopus Magazine

"Sorry, Tree is flat out a terrific book, joining what seem to be the simplest personal poems with a poetic craft that dazzles." --Ron Silliman
