His book, Angle of Yaw (2006), was a finalist for the National Book Award for Poetry. Other awards include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the Howard Foundation and The Paris Review‘s Terry Southern Prize. He is professor of English at Brooklyn College.

The author of more than a dozen volumes of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, Eileen Myles is the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship, a Warhol/Creative Capital art writer’s grant, and the Shelley Memorial Award, among other honors.
