Reviews

An awesomely elegant, subtly sensuous, stylish exploration of the inner self of an ageing portrait artist . . . If there were doubts about the maturity of Australian fiction, this book puts those doubts to rest. -- Frank Moorhouse
Like Patrick White, Miller uses the painter to portray the ambivalence of art and the artist. In The Sitters is the brooding genius of light. Its presence is made manifest in Miller's supple, painterly prose which layers words into textured moments. * The Sunday Age *
Elegant yet compassionate, austere yet profoundly human. * Australian Book Review *
