Starred Reviews in Booklist & Publishers Weekly

Two more starred reviews for THE ART OF STARVING – from Publisher’s Weekly & from Booklist!!

In their review, Booklist said:

“Miller’s heartfelt debut novel tackles difficult subjects with a bold mix of magical realism, tender empathy, and candor… Matt is delusional and anorexic, but he’s also an admirably strong character who is out and proud, brilliant, creative, and determined to survive. It’s not always easy to find novels with troubled gay male protagonists who aren’t doomed, and Miller’s creative portrait of a complex and sympathetic individual will provide a welcome mirror for kindred spirits.”

Publisher’s Weekly’s review said:

“Matt is a master at suppressing his urges, but there is nothing romantic about debut novelist Miller’s portrayal of anorexia; his descriptions are often graphic and disturbing, and discussion of Matt’s future is brutally honest. As Matt’s body deteriorates and his “powers” reach new levels, readers must decide for themselves what is and isn’t real.”

Go read the full reviews! THEY ARE AMAZING.
