About the Author

Rebecca Miller is the author of the short-story collection Personal Velocity, her feature-film adaptation of which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and the novels The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (FSG, 2008), which she also adapted for the screen, and Jacob's Folly (FSG, 2013). Her other films include Angela, The Ballad of Jack and Rose, and Maggie's Plan. She lives in New York with her family.

Reviews

Miller's new collection shows her in many moods and modes, from wistful to comedic to speculative. What a pleasure! --Jeffrey Eugenides, author of Fresh Complaint

Slim but powerful . . . Author and filmmaker Miller (Jacob's Folly, 2013) adeptly encapsulates these women's experiences. --Booklist (Starred Review)

Disarmingly matter-of-fact . . . A beautifully constructed, acutely felt, morally honest collection. --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

The seven brilliantly knotty and piercingly intimate stories in Total depict characters undone, temporarily or irreparably, by obsessive love. --Dan Sheehan, Lit Hub

In Miller's alluring collection (after the novel Jacob's Folly), protagonists search for connection and pleasure in strange, sometimes destructive ways . . . Miller brings a cinematic eye to her descriptions (a parking garage's 'final floor' offers a 'vivid sky') and plenty of drama to the situations. These stories are full of surprises. --Publishers Weekly
