Myles is co-editor of The New Fuck You/Adventures in Lesbian Reading. Her book I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems 1975–2014 was described by John Ashbury as being “like a gasp of fresh air in the turbulent urban environment she writes from.” Dan Chiasson is the author of Where’s the Moon, There’s the Moon, and Bicentennial. He serves as poetry critic for The New Yorker and teaches at Wellesley College.

Dan Chiasson is a poet, critic, and journalist and the author of five books, including Where’s the Moon, There’s the Moon, and Bicentennial, featuring poems that summon the author’s 1970s childhood in Vermont. Chiasson’s poetry has been published in The New Yorker, and he currently serves as the magazine’s poetry critic. His One Kind of Everything: Poem and Person in Contemporary America, a book of criticism, was published in 2006. Chiasson has received a Whiting Award, a Pushcart Prize, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He teaches at Wellesley College and is working on a children’s book titled The Moonkeeper’s Son.
