Myles (they/them, b. 1949) is a poet and writer whose practice of vernacular first-person writing has made them one of the most recognized writers of their generation. Pathetic Literature, which they edited was published in fall 2022. a “Working Life”, their newest collection of poems, is out in April. Myles’s fiction includes Chelsea Girls (1994) which just won France’s Les Inrockuptibles Prize for best foreign novel, Cool for You (2000), Inferno (a poet’s novel) (2010) and Afterglow (2017).
