What did you love best about Chelsea Girls?
NYC poets in the 1970-90s took too many drugs, smoked too many cigarettes, and enjoyed too much sex. In this novel, Eileen Myles overshares all the details. By the end of the book, I wanted to meet her.
What about Eileen Myles’s performance did you like?
I adore her accent and matter-of-face delivery. Myles reads really shocking things with a flattened affect. (Some of her disclosures would have been better left unwritten, but there is no unwringing the bell.)
Any additional comments?
The chapters were not laid out chronologically. There were childhood chapters that followed adulthood chapters. That makes me want to listen to the entire book again in order to appreciate the early parts now that I have context. Did Myles intend this effect?
