Inferno a Poets Novel
by Eileen Myles
Published by O/R Books
274p, b&w, 5.5"x8.25"
"Inferno" is one of the best books I have ever read. Myles' writing here wraps the brute force of a memoir within words so gorgeously warm, honed and unstoppable you have no choice but to keep reading. Her prose barrels forward, simultaneously demolishing and defining the identities her life is tethered to. It's a book that's simultaneously sexy, cranky, funny, dishy, insightful and human. As suspicious as I can be of poetry, this book is undeniably poetic - and an honest-to-goodness tour de force. Beyond recommended, friends- I think this one should be required. -EF
