Nancy K. Miller is the author or editor of more than a dozen books, most recently, My Brilliant Friends: Our Lives in Feminism (2019). Part memoir, part biography, the book tells the story of three friendships, forged in the spirit of seventies feminism, that changed—and saved—her life: Carolyn Heilbrun, Diane Middlebrook, and Naomi Schor.

Miller lectures widely, both nationally and internationally, and her work is anthologized in popular volumes on feminism and life writing. In 1983 she co-founded the Gender and Culture Series at Columbia University Press with the late Carolyn Heilbrun, and since 2004 coedits the series with Victoria Rosner.
