Overview
"Compelling . . . The strength of Brand New Human Being is its realistic portrayal of trauma and its aftermath." --Washington Post

Stay-at-home dad Logan Pyle is holding his life together by a thread: his larger-than-life father, Gus, has just died, his wife is distant, and his kindergarten-age son has regressed to drinking from a baby bottle and sucking his thumb. Complicating matters further is Bennie, Gus's beautiful young widow, with whom Logan has a troubled past. When the thread finally snaps, Logan's actions threaten to tear the family he treasures apart. Carried by Logan's wry, original voice, this moving debut follows one man's journey from child to parent.

"Introspective and honest . . . Miller's novel is sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, but always a worthy, exciting read." --Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone

"I devoured this novel. Miller's debut is funny, fast-paced and poignant, and it depicts a father-son relationship unlike any I've read before." --Jim Gavin, author of Middle Men
