TUESDAY, NOV. 3, 7PM:
CHRIS MARTIN AND EILEEN MYLES celebrating the release of The Falling Down Dance and I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems

CHRIS MARTIN: New this November from Coffee House Press, Chris Martin’s The Falling Down Dance explores failure, love, despair, time, and fatherhood, all in a vertigo-inducing verse that captivates the reader. Martin is also the author of Becoming Weather (Coffee House Press, 2011) and American Music (Copper Canyon Press, 2007), which was chosen by C. D. Wright for the Hayden Carruth Award. He is an editor at Futurepoem Books and will be a Visiting Assistant Professor at Carleton College in 2016.

EILEEN MYLES: A poet who “combines frankness and beauty in a truly original way” (The Guardian), Eileen Myles possesses an utterly unmistakeable voice on the page — sardonic, curious, and deeply alive — that has made her a beloved icon in the literary world. The publication of I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems 1975-2014 will no doubt be a landmark of the year, the decade, and maybe the century. Widely regarded as “one of the savviest and most restless intellects in contemporary literature,” Myles has written more than 20 volumes of poetry, fiction, essays, plays, and libretti over the last three decades, and has recently received a Guggenheim Fellowship to write a memoir.
