Join CNIB at the GTA Community Hub to officially launch the DAISY audio version of Late Breaking, by K.D. Miller.

Late Breaking was named by the Globe and Mail as one of the best books of 2018.

Inspired by the work of Alex Colville, the linked stories in K.D. Miller’s Late Breaking form a suite of portraits that evoke the paintings’ looming atmospheres and uncanny stillness while travelling deeply into their subjects’ vividly imagined lives. Throughout, the collection bears witness to the vulnerability of the elder heart, revealing that love, sex, and heartbreak are not only the domain of the young, and deftly rendering the conflicts that divide us and the ties that bind.

K.D. Miller was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1951. In 1973 she graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama and English from the University of Guelph. In 1978, she graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Master of Fine Arts degree in directing. Her first published story was “Now, Voyager,” which appeared in the May 1981 issue of Flare, and was the first-prize winner of that magazine’s literary contest. Since then, her stories and essays have appeared in Best Canadian Stories – Oberon 2008 and 2009, Maisonneuve Magazine, The Capilano Review, Canadian Forum, The New Quarterly, Prism International and The Journey Prize Anthology. K.D. Miller lives in Toronto. View her website at dawnwriter.com
