is the author of the novels While I Was Gone, The Good Mother, Family Pictures, For Love, The Distinguished Guest, The World Below, Lost in the Forest, The Senator’s Wife, The Lake Shore Limited, and, most recently, The Arsonist. Ms. Miller is also the author of the collection of stories Inventing the Abbotts, as well as the memoir The Story of My Father. Michiko Kakutani, writing in The New York Times, has said: “[Her work’s] power grows from Miller’s intimate understanding of her characters and from her Chekhovian understanding of missed connections, lost opportunities, and closely held memories that mutate slowly over time…. Haunting.” The Washington Post has said of Ms. Miller’s work that it is “sophisticated and thoughtful… Profound and unsettling… Moving… Exquisite… Gorgeously drawn and told with stark honesty… A miracle.” Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, writing in The New York Times, has said of the work of Ms. Miller that it “celebrates what is impulsive in human nature… Riveting… Psychologically subtle… Masterly.” The Chicago Tribune has described the work of Ms. Miller as “expert at reinventing memory and making narrative sense out of human relationships… Striking, life-changing… To read and admire Miller’s fiction demands nothing more than a degree of humanness.”
In addition to reading from her work, Sue Miller will be interviewed by Leonard Lopate.
