  • A searing, beautiful book by a supremely talented writer

    Sunday Times
  • In a world that asks too many survivors to keep their experiences to themselves and shrink their suffering to preserve someone else's potential, Know My Name stands unapologetically large, asking others to reckon with its author's dazzling, undiminishable presence. To read it, in spite of everything, inspires hope.

  • I can't wait to read it

    Dolly Alderton
  • A beautifully written, powerful, important story. It marks the debut of a gifted young writer... No matter who reads KNOW MY NAME, Miller's words are purpose. They are maps. And she is a treasure who has prevailed.

    New York Times
  • In its rare honesty and its small details, KNOW MY NAME is both an open wound and a salve, a quiet cry and the loudest scream...[it] is more than an indictment, though it is a successful and moving one. It is also an outstretched hand, inviting you to fight alongside her

    Elle
  • A skilled writer... Miller tells [her story] beautifully, caring enough for her reader to spin golden sentences from her pain

    Vogue
  • Know My Name is a gut-punch, and in the end, somehow, also blessedly hopeful...She implores us, too, to challenge and question the systems that aren't working.

    Washington Post
  • Miller's memoir is beautifully written, underscored by simmering indignation
