Derek B. Miller's forthcoming novel HOW TO FIND YOUR WAY IN THE DARK received a rave review in The New York Times. Reviewer Sarah Weinman writes: "I am convinced that Derek B. Miller’s HOW TO FIND YOUR WAY IN THE DARK was expressly tailored to my tastes and that I am its ideal reader. I suspect others will feel the same way; it’s that kind of book...In less confident hands the many moving parts would collapse into a jumble. Miller, however, juggles each element effortlessly. His character portraits are indelible, often heartbreaking. At times this novel moved me to tears, the highest possible compliment." Mariner Books will publish the novel on July 27, 2021.
