Queen of Radical Poetry
American poet, novelist, performer, arts journalist and inspiration for a character in the Amazon series Transparent, Eileen Myles is, in the New Yorker’s words 'a kickass countercultural icon', and 'a loudmouthed lesbian' in her own. She makes her Book Festival debut with I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems 1975-2014, which is published alongside her cult novel Chelsea Girls. Meet a unique talent. Chaired by Jenny Niven.
