Ladies Who Lunch

Nancy K. Miller. My Brilliant Friends

A few weeks ago, I was having lunch with my (brilliant) friend Peggy Waller at Nix, a sublime vegetarian restaurant near Union Square. I showed her the one copy of my new book, My Brilliant Friends, then in my possession—pub date January 1, 2019—and she wanted to take a picture of me to celebrate. I preferred the book jacket and the faces of the friends whose stories I tell.

Nancy K. Miller. Diary

Welcome. Some musings on my current preoccupations with the worlds of illness and the worlds of books: the vicissitudes of living with cancer and the need, for now, to launch (a k a promote) my new memoir, My Brilliant Friends: Our Lives in Feminism. Naturally, I inhabit both spaces, which makes for a strangely bifurcated, though far from boring, existence. Click to view both Feminist Friendship Archive and My Multifocal Life projects.
