My capsule review of Sue Miller‘s new novel, The Senator’s Wife, is up now:

Men tend to have a hard time getting out of Sue Miller novels in one piece: They get flung into light posts, wind up with tuberculosis, or get banished from their homes due to some disloyal fuck-up. (The film Inventing the Abbots was based on a Sue Miller story; so, it seems, are most episodes of Cheaters.) Miller’s anger at men nearly rivals Philip Roth’s rage at women, though it’s impossible to confuse the two writers….

USA Today‘s Web site has an excerpt from the novel. Miller reads at Politics & Prose on Jan. 14.
