Bruce Miller is both a Sales Rep and an Author. He is, you might say, fully immersed in the world of books. In 2013 he was awarded Publishers Weekly’s “Rep of the Year.”
In addition to being PW Rep of the Year, he has a new book coming out by the Minnesota Historical Society Press in 2014, entitled Curiosity’s Cats: Writers on Research
Thirteen writers—including historians, journalists, novelists, a scriptwriter, and more—offer powerful arguments for the value of hands-on research.
Inspired partly by Richard Altick’s The Scholar Adventurers, the thirteen writers in Curiosity’s Cats offer powerful arguments for the value of hands-on research, be it chasing documents, cracking mysteries, interviewing long-lost subjects, or visiting exotic and not-so-exotic locales.
Alberto Martinez explains how diligence with dates can provide clues to unlock the most difficult historical puzzles. Jan Reid explores the difference between research for an epic novel and research to write the epic biography of a friend. Margot Livesey suspects that she continues to write novels simply to do the research. But every essay testifies to the fact that research is valuable not only because of the product that may result from it, but because the process itself fulfills a basic human need.
Philip J. Anderson, Annette Kolodny, Theodore Kornweibel, Margot Livesey, Alberto Martinez, Bruce Joshua Miller, Katherine Hall Page, Jan Reid, Ali Selim, Marilyn Stasio, Ned Stuckey-French, Bruce White, and Steve Yates.
Bruce Joshua Miller has edited two books and written for public radio, the Chicago Tribune, and other publications. He has worked in the book industry for thirty-five years.
