Publisher Description

Alex Miller: The Ruin of Time is the first sole-authored survey of the critically acclaimed

Australian writer’s eleven novels. While Miller’s novels are immediately accessible to the

general reading public, they are manifestly works of high literary seriousness – substantial,

technically masterful and assured, intricately interconnected, and of great imaginative,

intellectual and ethical weight. Among his many prizes and awards, Alex Miller has twice

won the Miles Franklin Literary Award, for The Ancestor Game in 1993, and Journey to the

Stone Country in 2003; the Commonwealth Writers’ prize, also for The Ancestor Game in

1993; and the New South Wales Premier’s Literary Awards Christina Stead Prize, for

Conditions of Faith in 2001 and Lovesong in 2011. He received a Centenary Medal in 2001

and the Melbourne Prize for Literature in 2012. In 2011 he was elected a Fellow of the

Australian Academy of the Humanities. Having published his eleventh novel, Coal Creek, in

2013 – which won the Victorian Premier’s Fiction Award in 2014 – Miller is currently writing

an autobiographical memoir with the working title, Horizon.
