“Jonathan Miles is a great American storyteller,” Parker says, calling the story of Cameron Harris, a man who suddenly regains the ability to walk, and his rise to fame “tender, life-affirming, astoundingly joyous and deeply humane.” Miles’s previous works include Want Not and Dear American Airlines, both of which were named Notable Books by the New York Times.
ANATOMY OF A MIRACLE is brought to life by award-winning narrator Edoardo Ballerini, who has numerous titles including The Last Watchman of Old Cairo and Frankenstein in Baghdad.

Praise for ANATOMY OF A MIRACLE:
“A remarkable combination of medical mystery, satire and war story. Like Ben Fountain’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, it captures the long-lasting effects of war by focusing on those for whom war is only a tangential thing somewhere far away.” — Shelf Awareness
“Miles’s powerful prose nudges readers to seek the soft spots between faith and judgement, story and science, and fact and fiction.” — CJ Lotz, Garden & Gun
“Vibrant, bustling, and humorous…Cleverly shaped as a journalistic report, and told in a style similar to that of John Jeremiah Sullivan and Ron Currie, Miles’ tale offers a nuanced and endlessly entertaining exploration of the age-old debate between faith and reason.” —Booklist
