In her new book of poems Eileen Myles (author of Black Sparrow's Chelsea Girls, School of Fish and Maxfield Parrish) drags the chatty abstraction of New York School Poetry kicking and screaming into the passionate and mercurial landscape of the sky above. This hard-edged book about life in lower Manhattan concludes with a powerful and erotic sequence of love poems, woman to woman. Skies is Myles' strongest and most surprising book yet.
