Eclipsed Star Lupita Nyong'o Interviewed by Good Morning America; Eileen Myles Recommends Her Favorite Poetry for T: The New York Times Style Magazine
Eclipsed is in the news yet again! Actress Lupita Nyong'o, who stars in the Broadway production of Danai Gurira's groundbreaking play, was interviewed on April 14 on ABC-TV/Good Morning America. In the course of the conversation, Nyong'o expressed her gratitude for being able to play challenging roles, like the one she takes on in Eclipsed, that are "changing something in the air and introducing people to a new way of looking at the world."
The April 15 issue of T: The New York Times Style Magazine chronicles the sudden rise of poet Eileen Myles as a feminist icon in the past year, when her poetry started to appear in the New Yorker, the New York Review of Books, and the Amazon series Transparent. In the article, Myles cites Lucille Clifton, John Wieners, and Allen Ginsberg as influences. She went on to recommend her top ten favorite books of all time, including The Book of Frank by CAConrad, Supplication: Selected Poems of John Wieners, and the poetry of Michelle Tea, whose novel Black Wave is forthcoming from The Feminist Press at CUNY in the fall. Myles's collection Snowflake/Different Streets was published by Wave Books in 2012.
