Monogamy.jpg

Tom’s guest is the best-selling author, Sue Miller.  She’s written a dozen novels and a memoir which have been translated and published in more than 20 countries around the world. 

Her latest novel  Monogamy is a portrait of a decades-long marriage, a marriage full of passion, and problems.  It’s a trenchant take on the complications that attend all relationships, the fragility of family, the complexities of friendship, and devastating consequences when closely-held secrets are revealed.  

Sue Miller is the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the Radcliffe Institute.  She’s taught writing at several colleges and universities in New England, and she’s been a board member of the PEN American Center.  Her latest book, Monogamy is out now.
