"A sharply etched, unvarnished self-portrait." dash;Kirkus Reviews

odquo;[Myles] has a good time journeying through Hell, and like a hip Virgil, . . . is happy to show us the way.gdquo; dash;NPR

"This is signature Myles: the unconventional syntax, the jazzy rhythms, the total commitment to writing in the heat of the moment, not edited or modulated by concessions to linear rationality."tdash;Phil Gambone, Gay pLesbian Review

In this raucous meditation, Eileen Myles offers an intimate glimpse into creativity squo;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, timeesquo;s idquo;optic quality dquo; is what enables writing in the first placeldash;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.
