SUMMARY Ý While I Was Gone READ â PADDINGTONFESTIVAL.CO.UK Ì Sue Miller Her present life her husband and her world Jo struggles against becoming enveloped by her past and its dark secret“While I Was Gone swoops gracefully between the past and the present between a woman’s complex feelings about her husband and her eually complex fantasies–and fears–about another man Miller writes well about the trials of faith”–The New York Times Book Review“uietly gripping Jo shines st. Somewhat unwillinglyI reread this novel for a book groupAnd I found details about Sue Miller s style that I had not paid attention to in my first go roundShe is a master of natural description and I slowed to savor the snow falling in New England and the pleasures of walking the dogs late on an autumn evening Miller strikes me as both a highly moral author and one who is scrupulously honest about her characters inner thoughts and motives The tension between these results in gripping prose and in characters we don t completely likebutin whom we believe I am always a bit uncomfortable when I have read a Miller novelbut I have not missed one
