Review of Know My Name by Chanel Miller

Updated: Jan 13

Miller is a beautiful, powerful writer with clear and sophisticated arguments and a compelling identity separate from the attack that led to her being in the spotlight.

Miller is a beautiful, powerful writer with clear and sophisticated arguments and a compelling identity separate from the pivotal attack that led to her being in the spotlight. She also has a strong, passionate grasp of widely experienced inequalities—and ideas of how to chip away at some of the injustices and societal norms that should be excised from existence.


I began reading this because I thought I should, not because I wanted to. Miller surprised me with the delicately balanced tone she was able to strike, of passionate belief in right and wrong, emotional reactions to her situation, and measured arguments and calm determination. I was fascinated by her.


Any Bossy thoughts about this book?

Miller really took me by surprise with how thoughtfully and powerfully she handled this difficult and emotional topic.


Now I'd like Miller to please write more books about varied topics, because I like spending time in her head.
