City of Asylum (2017)

Eileen Myles

Tuesday, October 10th
8:00 pm

Guggenheim Fellowship-recipient Eileen Myles will read from the new book Afterglow (A dog memoir), a portrait of Eileen’s beloved canine confidant: a pit bull called Rosie.

In 1990, Eileen chose Rosie from a litter on the street, and their connection instantly became central to the writer’s life and work. During the course of their sixteen years together, Eileen was madly devoted to the dog’s well-being, especially in her final days. Starting from the emptiness following Rosie’s death, Afterglow launches a heartfelt and fabulist investigation into the true nature of the bond between pet and pet-owner.
