Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award, 2019

New Statesman's best books of the year, 2018

This new book of poems and essays by Eileen Myles finds our game-changing writer keying lines in the euphoric style that the New York Times has called 'one of the essential voices in American poetry.'

Following the critically claimed Afterglow (a dog memoir) and I Must Be Living Twice , their career-spanning selected poems, Evolution is Myles' first all-new poetry collection since 2011's Snowflake/different streets . These new poems upend genre in a vernacular that enacts, like nothing else, the way we speak (inside and out today). From walking around Marfa and New York City with an orange pit bull to Eileen's transcendent acceptance speech as President, Evolution lifts a can of Diet Coke as an End-of-the-World toast to embodiment, irreverence and risk.
