"In this breathtakingly inventive autobiographical novel, Eileen Myles transforms her life into a work of art. Told in her audacious and singular voice made vivid and immediate in her lyrical language, Chelsea Girls cobbles together memories of Myles's 1960s Catholic upbringing with an alcoholic father, her volatile adolescence, her unabashed 'lesbianity,' and her riotous pursuit of survival as a poet in 1970s New York. Suffused with alcohol, drugs, and sex; evocative in its depictions of the hardscrabble realities of a young artist's life; with raw, flickering stories of awkward love, humor, and discovery, Chelsea Girls is a funny, cool, and intimate account of a writer's education, and a modern tale of how one young female writer managed to shrug off the chains of the rigid cultural identity meant to define her"--Page 4 of cover… (mere)

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The story of Eileen Myles is very intriguing and if read in paperback would probably be much better. I listened to the book as an audio book. The narrator was Eileen herself. Of the audio books I have listened to, I don't think she is the best narrator. Her story would have been more captivating with a different person reading and I wonder if part of that was she was too close to her own book. The story itself was interesting and there were parts that the stories kept me wanting more details. Overall, if you want an interesting story, this would do the trick. ( )

This took a while to finish, but not because I didn't like it. I just couldn't stop my mind from jumping around, every other line made me recall something I hadn't thought about in a while and gave me a new voice to think with. I hope to come back to this book someday.

Sex, drugs, and poetry. Lots of all three, though surprisingly more heavily weighted to the first two. This book is sort of a memoir, sort of a novel, and the audiobook is read by Myles herself. I would have lived to hear more about her years in New York City, but she had some crazy stories from back home.

Eileen Myles is a poet and she reads this book for us in a distinctive Boston area accent. There are troubling times for the protagonist. It is a novel, yet it "reads" more like a memoir. At first the droning on of alcohol abuse and sexuality were oppressive, but it was transformed by the end of the novel into a path of transcendence. I would imagine most readers will turn it off before the end, but if you stick it out it is worthwhile. Her father's alcoholism is truly tragic and makes the hero's adolescence a nightmare.

So I received the audiobook of this, thinking it would be great to listen to read aloud because Myles is a poet, and while the book seems interesting enough, she reads it in such a drawling monotone that I kept falling asleep! I think I might have better luck reading it on paper. It's a really interesting concept, and like how she skips around from place to place, a memoir that's more episodic than narrative. She also clearly has a good sense of humor about herself - always appreciated in a poet. :) ( )
