John Miller is the award-winning author of three novels of literary fiction. Born in Toronto in 1968, he spent his childhood in Ottawa and Toronto, benefiting from Canada’s bilingual education system.

With a B.A. from McGill and an M.A. in International Development Studies from the Institute of Social Studies in The Netherlands, he returned to Toronto in 1992 to begin a career in social services.

With my friend Yves, there’s always an adventure. It shouldn’t have surprised me, then, when I joined his gay aerobics team on an excursion last March to a cabane à sucre outside of Montreal, that a year later, he would talk me into a costume party. So much about that last sentence amuses me. First, […]

Thien's writing is extremely beautiful, and her storytelling is utterly captivating. The device she uses is similar to Amy Tan's The Hundred Secret Senses, i.e the family member coming from China and beguiling her younger North American sister with b ...more

Clever, inventive, interesting--and links together parts of history we don't usually connect: persecution of Jews during the Inquisition, African enslavement, and the genocide of the native peoples of the Caribbean.

Neil, sorry for the delayed response - I am getting used to Goodreads and somehow my settings didn't forward your message. I hope you had a great trip to the Netherlands. Land of my alma mater! :) I've been working on a new novel and it is currently being shopped to publishers, so stay tuned for good news soon (we hope!)

All the best to you.

Neil Mudde Hi John:

Great to meet you along in this matter, super shot of yourself. What have you been working on these days?
Currently I am spending a few weeks in the Netherlands, the place of my birth, visiting hither and yon, I have a few Aunts who are getting pretty old, and thought to get some family info from them. Today is remembrance day, and I had an invitation to a church service in the Nieuwe Kerk (the new King and Maxima were in attendance, after which there was an impressive somber ceremony of the laying of wreath at the Dam Monument, thousands of people in attendance. Tomorrow in contrast they will celebrate liberation day, which should be a hoot.
Take good care!
