fdquo;[Myles] has a good time journeying through Hell, and like a hip Virgil, . . . is happy to show us the way.adquo;tdash;NPR
 
In this raucous meditation, Eileen Myles offers an intimate glimpse into creativityssquo;s immediacy. With erudition and wit, Myles recounts their early years as an awakening writer; existential struggles with landlords; storied moments with neighbors, friends, and lovers; and the textures and identities of cities and the country that reveal the nature of writing as presence in time.
 
For Myles, timexsquo;s rdquo;optic qualityldquo; is what enables writing in the first placesdash;as attention, as devotion, as excess. It is this chronologized vision that enables the writer to love the world as it presently is, lending love a linguistic permanence amid social and political systems that threaten to eradicate it. Irreverent, generous, and always insightful, For Now is a candid record of the creative process from one of our most beloved artists.
