Author of The Last Days of California
In her debut novel “The Last Days of California,” Jackson native Mary Miller tells the story of a family from Montgomery AL who embark on a road-trip to California to witness the Rapture, along the way discovering more about each other than about the end times. The New York Times praised the novel for feeling “like a poem, each day on the road like a stanza repeated with slight variations and brand names used as incantations…” adding, “Miller always chooses just the right detail to illuminate life in the 2010s.”
Miller has previously published two collections of micro fiction “The Big World” and “Less Shiny.”
