"Miller and Wade’s marvelous Telephone takes the ordinary—cars, exercise, toys, sex—and elevates it to the extraordinary. Each subject is subjected to lyrical rendering and astonishing interpretation. Telephone stuns us with its burnished music, its use of form, and its brilliant musings on seemingly quotidian subjects. In these twin-voiced essays is a celebration of narrative’s thrall, but also a liberation blueprint that frees us from the tyranny of a single self, a single story."  -James Allen Hall, author Now You're the Enemy
