Future Guernica Author, Nancy Anne Miller, Publishes New Book



Bermudian poet and future Guernica author, Nancy Anne Miller, has recently released a new collection of poetry entitled Immigrant’s Autumn: Poems of Exile (Aldrich Press, December 2014). The poems in the collection “take a look at Bermuda, her native home, from the detached point of view of someone living away.”

Nancy Anne Miller lives in Connecticut, United States. Her collection, Somersault, is forthcoming from Guernica Editions in 2015.

Her book Because There Was No Sea was published by Anaphora Literary Press in 2014, and her poems have appeared in numerous journals and reviews from the UK, US and Canada, including Fiddlehead, The Dalhousie Review, The Toronto Quarterly Blog, and Postcolonial Text.

In her review of Because There Was No Sea, Bermudian author Kim Aubrey says:
“Nancy Anne Miller’s poems embrace island icons with a ruthless tenderness, teasing out their secrets and accepting with equal enthusiasm their surface beauty and their burdened hearts.
“Miller approaches the island’s difficult colonial history from a position of exile and with a wondrous ability to find and restore the paradisiacal as she explores the mysteries of one place through the lens of the other.”
Nancy Anne Miller has a Master of Letters in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow, is a MacDowell Fellow, and a three time recipient of Bermuda Art Council Grants.
