I was happy to come upon Miracles after my husband Alan's death in 2015. While it was written in the 1960s and dedicated to the memory of David Hahn, it was one of my favorite, imaginative, cinematic novels that Alan wrote and which was highly praised by cinematic critic Pauline Kael and author Paul Bellow. It is as fresh in conception and execution as it was the day Alan wrote it. I am happy to get it into print.With love
