|Eric Miller||The Reservoir|
The Reservoir explores the diverse manifestations of human love in contemplative essays by Eric Miller. Strands of memory, history, childhood, family, war, creativity and affection weave an elegant tapestry of prose connecting past and present. From a fantasia on Lady Simcoe of Upper Canada in “The Fifth of April 1793” to a study of paternal love in “Fredericton and Fatherhood,” Miller finds humour, depth and meaning in the relations which link us to each other and to history. This thoughtful volume of essays will resonate deeply with readers and belongs with the best of Canadian creative non-fiction.
