Author of the Month

Since her first novel, The Good Mother (1986), Miller has distinguished herself as a careful chronicler of daily life, with a gift for being able to marry the precise rendering of of experience and emotion with a superb economy of style. Born into an academic and ecclesiastical family, she grew up in Chicago's Hyde Park and went to college at Harvard. While not strictly speaking autobiographical, Miller's fiction is, nonetheless, shaped by her experiences.

In her new novel, The Arsonist, Miller continues to explore the intricacies of home and hearth, creating another extraordinary story out of the quiet intimacies of family and friendship. Upon returning home to the small New Hampshire town of Pomeroy after an absence of 15 years, Frankie Rowley finds the town plagued by an arsonist. Over several weeks as the fires continue, she comes to recognize her father's slow failing and her mother's desperation. At the same time, Frankie finds herself beginning an unexpected, passionate affair with Bud Jacobs, the owner of the local paper, as they both try to come to grips with the social fault lines the fires reveal in a trusting community where no one has ever before bothered to lock their doors.
