Susan Miller grew up in New York in the 1950s, in a family whose lack of money, and happiness appeared to have no definable cause. When she turned 21, her father's sudden disclosure of his drug addiction shed light on their past. This memoir retraces the innocence of a childhood lived in ignorance.

Review quote

"This elegantly constructed memoir is precise, insightful, and strangely healing to read." (The New Yorker) "What makes Never Let Me Down so powerful is how Miller winds in and around her topic so that each pass through the family's early life is more revealing, while the emotional atmosphere gathers a ragged intensity." (Paula Freidman, The New York Times Book Review) "[Never Let Me Down] announces the birth of a real writer." (The Boston Phoenix) "Miller's brave evocations of the past are bracing in their clarity, honesty, and depiction." (Naomi Glauberman, Los Angeles Times)
