Greenlight and The Bell House are thrilled to welcome acclaimed poet, author, and artist Eileen Myles to celebrate the release of their latest work A Working Life

Eileen Myles, in their own words, on A Working Life: “What is the poetry equivalent of sitting on a chair like a musician with just a guitar, or a comedian on a stool on the cover of an album not even standup, but just going to tell it to you right here on vinyl. For me, A Working Life is not so much unplugged as openly admitting that the poems here, the love poems and the waiting poems and the reveling in stark slowed down time is the essence of poetry as much as it was in my 20s as it is in in my 70s, like a grand contractual permission to be and the poems are the plan. A Working Life is a book in which I throw my cards down, meaning the poems pretty much model the existence that is unfolding in all of them and these little formulas, short and long in which the plan gets revealed again and again was always to live exactly like this, and just once, now. I’m hoping the reader picks it up and feels it’s true.”

Told with intelligence, heart, and singular vision, please join us at The Bell House for the new release of A Working Life by Eileen Myles.
