Eilee Myles and Olivia Laing

Icon of radical American Letters Eileen Myles has produced more than 20 volumes of fiction, memoir and poetry over the past three decades, a body of work that led the novelist Dennis Cooper to describe her as 'one of the savviest and most restless intellects in contemporary literature.' To mark the publication of her novel Chelsea Girls in paperback and a new collection of poetry I Must Be Living Twice, Eileen Myles talks to Olivia Laing, author of To the River, The Trip to Echo Spring and The Lonely City.
