Recognized today as one of the great works of contemporary American literature, My Life is at once poetic autobiography, personal narrative, a woman's fiction, and an ongoing dialogue with the poet and her experience. Upon its first publication by Sun & Moon Press (the edition reprinted here) the publication "Library Journal "described the book as one that "is an intriguing journey that both illuminates and perplexes, teases and challenges, as it reveals an innovative artist at work." Lyn Hejinian is the author of "The Cell, The Cold of Poetry, Writing Is an Aid to Memory "and "A Border Comedy," She lives in Berkeley and teaches at the University of California.
