A skilled writer... Miller tells [her story] beautifully, caring enough for her reader to spin golden sentences from her pain * Vogue * 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 * 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. * Guardian * I can't wait to read it -- Dolly Alderton A searing, beautiful book * Sunday Times * You are a brave soul. You are more than the identity given to you by the media and those in power -- Monica Lewinsky Extraordinary woman turning pain into power. Chanel Miller, it's a privilege to know your name, and to celebrate it -- Thandie Newton Powerful, honest and necessary -- Marian Keyes A beautifully written, powerful, important story. It marks the debut of a gifted young writer. * New York Times *
