About the Author
Only a wildly gifted novelist could give us this terrific tale of Georgie Hyde-Lees and her sometime suitor, the much older poet W. B. Yeats. Written with superb emotional rightness.--Joan Silber, author of Improvement
A transporting, wrenching novel written in prose that dances across the page.--Keija Parssinen, author of The Unraveling of Mercy Louis
Subtle and low-key, Miller's debut coolly appraises the poet while fully inhabiting the woman in his shadow.
