In Conversation: On Monogamy

Authors:Sue Miller, Carol Fitzgerald


Sue Miller’s Monogamy tells the story of Graham, a gregarious bookseller, and Annie, a shy photographer, who have been married nearly 30 years. When Graham suddenly dies, Annie wonders what, exactly, is the point of going on without him. But when she discovers a ruinous secret he kept, she’s forced her to question whether she ever truly knew Graham at all. Miller discusses the book – and how photography became a central part of it – with Carol Fitzgerald, president and founder of The Book Report Network and host of the “Bookreporter Talks To” video/podcast series.

This program is presented in partnership with The Book Report Network.
