Join Myles and author Lynne Tillman for an intimate conversation about how the creative process can help us live in and through the present.  This program was livestreamed on October 13, 2020.

Eileen Myles on their selection:

I picked this book off a shelf in a small place I was staying in Provincetown this summer. I'd never read Victor Hugo and found his writing so painterly and lush and philosophical and yet confoundingly graphic. A shipwreck felt so culturally apt too. I think we are at sea.

On the 7th of March Perdu is launching the English-language podcast Time Lost. In the first episode Eileen Myles presents their unpublished work My Secret, a prose piece about the selling of their archive to the Beinecke collection at Yale. Following the performance of this work, they enter into conversation with Linda Veldman and Martha Jager. Their work is the starting point for a discussion on the relationship between the writer and their past writing, the contrast between the finality of being archived and the way writing allows us to continuously change the way one relates events to ourselves.
