“When the news gets appalling enough, [Eli] Valley will show you the grotesquerie, and make you feel it” — DIASPORA BOY featured in Hyperallergic

May 24, 2022

May 23, 2022
“These days, Myles enjoys the status of esteemed downtown New York cultural figure… They are now often stopped on the street by young and deferential writers who wish to express appreciation for the work Myles produced in a grittier city that lives on only in myth… Myles toiled on the margins for decades before experiencing a mainstream revival upon the 2015 reissue of their 1994 autobiographical novel, ‘Chelsea Girls.’ It won new admirers, suddenly appearing tucked inside tote bags at bookish Brooklyn coffee shops, and a character based on the author appeared on the show ‘Transparent.’”
