Jonathan Miles left home at seventeen, intent on a life in music, but when he landed in Oxford, Mississippi, he traded in the blues for writing. Having learned the art of fiction and of living from Barry Hannah and the late Larry Brown, Miles has worked as a blues researcher, bartender, gardener, and journalist, covering everything from the death of Faulkner's bootlegger to the theory and practice of bar fights to the Dakar Rally in Africa. Now the cocktails columnist for the New York Times and books columnist for Men's Journal, Miles's work has appeared, among other places, in GQ, the Oxford American, the New York Observer, and the New York Times Book Review.

Jonathan Miles recommends
Lioness (2022)
Mark Powell
"Mark Powell's Lioness is a force of nature: moody, twisty, stormy, and supercharged with the fierce blue voltage of top-notch storytelling. It's a riveting ecothriller that's also a profound exploration of grief - grief for one another, and grief for the earth. What a powerful novel."
Call Your Daughter Home (2019)
Deb Spera
"A ferociously moving story of motherhood and justice, relayed through a trio of radiantly unforgettable voices. Deb Spera is a conjurer of the first rank."
