Maggie Nelson provides the first extended consideration of the roles played by women in and around the New York School of poets, from the 1950s to the present, and offers unprecedented analyses of the work of Barbara Guest, Bernadette Mayer, Alice Notley, Eileen Myles, and abstract painter Joan Mitchell as well as a reconsideration of the work of many male New York School writers and artists from a feminist perspective.

Review:

  " So many times over the years I’ ve been asked, What’ s it like to be a woman in rock music? It’ s always been sort of a paralyzing question-to answer it is to give the question itself meaning. Maggie Nelson here opens it all up for examination with this incredibly timely and astute book." -Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth

" Maggie Nelson is deft and revelatory in bringing sociological as well as psychological, stylistic, and political insights to bear on her title terms, ‘ women’ and ‘ the New York School.’ She lays bare an obscured history, performs imaginative and incisive readings of careers as well as books and poems, and foots her way with exciting skill through the overlapping minefields of professional, national, and sexual politics." --Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, author, "A Dialogue on Love"

" After decades of listening (enthralled, of course) to the knitted ribbon-dress observations of John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, and James Schuyler, finally, the other serious ladies of the necessarily 'so called' New York School--Joan Mitchell, Barbara Guest, Bernadette Mayer, Alice Notley, and Eileen Myles--are invited to give their full throated response. Smart as a whip and fun as an after hours bar, Maggie Nelson gets fresh with heretofore queerly ignored matters poetic, aesthetic, and feminist. Rearranging the school's classroom seating, illuminating details, all the while demonstrating how crucial not caring is to care, Nelson remaps the 'one flow' of poetry. Let me blunt: reading her bravura study's like spying on Joan Jett taking Helen Vendler for a joyride." --Bruce Hainley
