Awards & Recognition Sarah Jessica Parker selects ANATOMY OF A MIRACLE by Jonathan Miles as new Book Club Central pick!

Sarah Jessica Parker has selected the “profound new novel” ANATOMY OF A MIRACLE by Jonathan Miles as the new ALA Book Club Central read!

“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.

“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
