Eileen Myles - Afterglow (a dog memoir)

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 30, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

One of today’s most innovative writers, Myles is the award-winning author of more than twenty books, including the novel Chelsea Girls and I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems 1975-2014. Combining memoir, fantasy, and an extraordinary empathy that leaps species boundaries, Myles’s latest book is a bittersweet memoir of Rosie, a pit bull that shared Myles’s life for sixteen years. As Myles looks back on the literature the two created together, the walks they took, and channels Rosie’s own perspective through an interview with a puppet, they celebrate a complex, dynamic relationship, explore the special bond between people and pets, and offer a deeply insightful meditation on grief.
