My Brilliant Friends

I was thrilled to receive this photo of four of my wonderful students and former students. I love seeing them posed with their copy of My Brilliant Friends at the book exhibit and, above their copies, their beautiful, smiling faces. The only thing more gratifying than this would be my seeing their books on display at MLA. It’s only a matter of time for these future brilliant feminist friends.

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.
