Jonathan Miller Day 1


On Your Own

"I found myself becoming attached to these small-town, small-time dreamers and strivers. Jonathan Miller's spare, understated prose tugs you right into their dreams and disappointments." – Jamie Lucke, Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader 

"A vibrant collection of stories ... You'll want to read more to see how some of these characters turned out." – Allen Creig Ewing, former (Louisville, Ky.) Courier-Journal sports editor 

On Your Own, Jonathan Miller's story collection, follows the kind of people you know, but reveals the thoughts and feelings they might never tell you. 

These characters – young brothers, struggling husbands and wives, aging bachelors, restless office workers – maneuver through the worlds of childhood, sports, marriage, alcohol, sex, the workplace, and longing for connection, under Miller's honest gaze. His clean, straightforward writing does not rely on extravagant plots (though significant surprises occur); he finds a quiet richness in events that can and do happen to all of us every day. 

Like the sun providing a rare glimpse down the clear water of a well, the clarity of prose in On Your Own allows us to witness people as their deeper realizations become known.
