Can You Smell the Rain?
Poetry. CAN YOU SMELL THE RAIN? poses the old theatrical question, Who wants what, and why can't they have it? Her confused characters take themselves seriously as they yearn for love. With wit and gently biting satire, the poet presents their struggles. Beware: a snicker at these characters is a snicker at yourself. Poet Mia Leonin writes, "Miller's rapturous attention to detail and her deft sense of story conjure a poetic genealogy, swirling and swooning with ancestors, lovers, and earthly delights." Poet H. L. Hix writes in his foreword, "This is a lyric memoir lush with vivid and vivifying particulars the objects of a lifetime." Whether the scene is a French-speaking convent school in Kansas City or an Irish-American woman's further coming of age as a Radcliffe student, wife, mother, poet, or world traveler, Miller's true journey is an interior one marked by a radiant wit and a sensuous appreciation for life itself.
