Sure Derek Miller's novels are smart and full of heart and savvy . . . he's as dedicated as any writer I know to the proposition that readers should enjoy themselves, should delight in the experience of life and language. If our hearts get broken along the way, so much the better.
What astonishes and impresses me about Miller's books is how witty and entertaining they are in moments, and yet deeply resonant and meaningful as well. Whether tackling issues of war or race, Derek Miller goes to the heart of matters affecting how we as a civilisation live
As daring in execution as imagination, this adventure tale crackles with heart, charm and dark honesty
A page-turner that is both funny and sad, intelligent and full of hope. This is a must read from a writer of extreme talent and compassion
