ANGSTY, SWEATY, PHYSICALLY UNCOMFORTABLE
Down The Hall Book Club August selection is Inferno > AUGUST 24
"Desire isn’t cool. It’s angsty, sweaty, physically uncomfortable. In Eileen Myles’s Inferno (A Poet’s Novel), the sincerity of the narrator’s yearning—for women, for poetry—might tilt into sentimentality were it not for the casual disarray of the prose: a cool envelope for a burning missive. Earnestness is offset by wit, lyricism by dry commentary, and always there is the marvelous dishevelment of Myles’s sentences, as commas are willfully dropped, clauses fused, and one tense shades obliquely into another." -- from The Inferno book review in The Believer, by Emily Cooke
The August 2015 DTHBC selection is Inferno: A Poet's Novel by Eileen Myles, from OR Books.
