Sue Miller to Visit Monday, February 2, 2009

Sue Miller will speak about her new novel, The Senator’s Wife (2008), about the private troubles of a political marriage between a hero of progressive causes and his shy, retiring wife.

"...Miller plays her hand in a masterly fashion. Shock, deceit, desire and despair come together at once in a way that feels simply like fate.... I saw in Miller what her fans have always seen: a clever storyteller with a penchant for the unexpected and a talent for depicting the bizarre borderline acts, the unfortunate boundary crossings and the regrettable instances of excessive self-indulgence that can destroy a world in a blink." --Judith Warner, New York Times
