Miranda Miller was born in London in 1950, the youngest of four children. As a child she wanted to act and her love of the theatre has influenced her novels, which are visual and dramatic and contain a lot of dialogue.

“Miller’s intricate fictions are lit by the dark flicker of a strong and original imagination.”

— Hilary Mantel
