Eileen Myles is a poet, playwright, and prose writer. Over the past 
thirty-five years, she has published more than twenty volumes of work 
spanning genres. “There are so many different packages for the same 
energy to travel through,” she has said.

This fall, Ecco will publish /I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected 
Poems, 1975-2014/. Accompanying this volume is a reissue of /Chelsea 
Girls/, Myles’s autobiographical novel, which cobbles together memories 
of Myles’s Catholic upbringing with an alcoholic father, her volatile 
adolescence, her unabashed “lesbianity,” and her riotous pursuit of 
survival as a poet in 1970s New York.
