Streamed conversation by author about her novel

Sue Miller’s latest release, Monogomy, is an engrossing and haunting novel about marriage, love, family, happiness and sorrow.

Sue is recognized internationally for her elegant and sharply realistic accounts of the contemporary family. Her books have been widely translated and published in 22 countries around the world.

The Good Mother (1986), the first of her ten novels, was an immediate bestseller (more than six months at the top of the New York Times charts). Subsequent novels include three Book-of-the-Month main selections:  Family Pictures (a Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award), While I Was Gone (an Oprah’s Book Club selection), and The Senator’s Wife.

Her non-fiction book, The Story of My Father, was heralded by BookPage as a “beautiful, spare memoir about her relationship with her father during his illness and death from Alzheimer’s disease.”  Her numerous honors include a Guggenheim and a Radcliffe Institute Fellowship.

Sue is a committed advocate for the writer’s engagement with society at large, having held a position on the Board of PEN-American Center. For four years she was Chair of PEN New England, an active branch that worked with writing programs in local high schools and ran classes in prisons.  She has taught fiction at, among others, Amherst, Tufts, Boston University, Smith, and MIT.
