Praise

“Is there anything capable of surviving the apocalyptic wreckage of a world? Miller establishes the daily rhythms of Haiti, the stark demands of a life lived amid capricious, grinding poverty, and the marvelous, salty exchanges that occur alongside it all. The language is arresting . . . Miller’s writing manages to be both passionate and economical, and when dialogue and physical scenes pop, they pop off. Zo [bears] witness to tenderness and heroism, the depths of loneliness and peaks of romance — and the courage of an entire nation.” -Kawai Strong Washburn, The New York Times Book Review 

“Beautifully written … A story of star-crossed romance threatened by class and—eventually—the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010. Miller’s writing is vivid and engaging, filled with richly imagined scenes and fully formed characters.” -Kirkus

“A provocative modern rendition of the Romeo and Juliet story … written in raw and affecting prose. Set against the backdrop of a country ravaged by nature, Zo takes the reader to the very limits of what a person will do for love.” -Enobong Tommelleo, Booklist

“A resonant coming-of-age romance set in the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Miller does justice to his belief that Haitians have survived by saving themselves, not through outside intervention. The love story of Zo and Anaya tugs the heartstrings.” -Publishers Weekly
