Miller’s main character, playwright Billy Gertz, creates emotions of desperation, maddening unknowns, sorrow, and guilt in her work while the real people in her life continue to grapple with inconsolable loss years after 9/11. Author Miller exquisitely constructs the juxtaposition between real-life trauma and Billy's play. As narrator, Miller performs with the expertise that arises from her intimate awareness of every nuance. The novel is structured around early readings of the protagonist’s play interspersed with the internal dialogues and memories of the real-life characters. Miller’s lyrical prose and well-timed narration work well to avoid any confusion between the two. THE LAKE SHORE LIMITED is an anguished metaphor for 9/11. A.W.
