The Globe and Mail reviews Lily Poritz Miller

Lily Poritz Miller’s first novel, In a Pale Blue Light, was recently reviewed by the Globe and Mail. The Globe said she “unfolds her story at measured pace, pulling us subtly and intimately into family conflicts shaped and backdropped by the city's simmering tensions of race and class.” They also felt that “the novel's structure work[ed] invisibly” and that “Miller captures flaring lust at the moment it shatters innocence.”

“This book's closing pages are a wonder of sleight-of-hand synthesis and catharsis: on the surface conventional and familiar, yet in their depths tapping to the heart of our shared humanity. Lily Poritz Miller's debut is quietly extraordinary.”
