Endorsements

  • Not Me is the biography of an American outlaw... a poet who believes in action as well as acts of imagination.

    The Kenyon Review

  • Myles basically talks shit in skinny columns and calls them poems. Thing is, she has one of the savviest voices and most restless intellects in contemporary lit—honest, jokey, paranoid, sentimental, mean, lyrical, tough, you name it.

    Dennis Cooper

    Artforum

  • Myles is a female adventurer... a peripatetic poet on a mission to amplify herself and to live large as the heroic anti-hero of her poems.
