Heights’ Author Jennifer Miller Profiled About Novel ‘Gadfly’

Brooklyn Heights resident Jennifer Miller, author of just-published “The Year of the Gadfly,” is profiled on webbie Capital New York, which writer Yevgeniya Traps describes as “a buzzy debut novel set in a posh private school beleaguered by secrets and scandals.”

The piece opens: “At 4 p.m. on a recent Friday afternoon, the Tazza coffee shop in Brooklyn Heights looked like it had been filled by Central Casting. Toddlers gamboled at [sic] their patient, lovingly distracted mothers’ feet; school kids, just set free for the weekend, gorged on pastries; law students seemed lost in their melodramatically oversized tomes; men with varying degrees of facial hair idled with their iPads.”

On her own website, Miller quips: “Jen holds an MFA in fiction-writing and a MS in journalism from Columbia. She is a native of Washington, and currently lives in Brooklyn, with all the other writers.”
