Described as a nonfiction novel, this 1994 Künstlerroman by queer literary icon Eileen Myles tells the story of a narrator named Eileen Myles, a poet who loves women, coming into personal and artistic adulthood amidst the tumult and thrill of the East Village in the 70s and 80s.

Distinctive sans-serif typography and textured paper characteristic of books published by Black Sparrow Press. Formed in Los Angeles in 1966 to publish the works of Charles Bukowski and other avant-garde authors, Black Sparrow Press titles from pre-2002 (when founders John and Barbara Martin sold the press) are highly sought after print objects. A special copy.
