Eileen Myles: Afterglow

From the moment Myles picked her from a litter in 1990, Rosie had been essential part of Myles’ life and work. Myles’ devotion to her dog never waned in the sixteen years they were together. Beginning with the void created in her heart after the death of Rosie, Afterglow gives us an intimate and special account of the relationship between pet and pet-owner. Through this storytelling, we witness Myles’s experiences with intimacy and spirituality, celebrity and politics, alcoholism and recovery, fathers and family history, as well as the fantastical myths we spin to get to the heart of grief. Afterglow (a dog memoir) shows all that it can mean when we devote our existence to a dog.
