Anna Beecher's work is about love. She is interested in dignity, rebellion and lives shaped by loss. She is a current MFA candidate at the University of Virginia and a winner of the $10,000 Henfield Prize for Fiction. She also has written widely for theatre and performance, including early years show Nest, which will be touring the UK in March 2019. Here Comes the Miracle is her first novel.
An exceptional novel - subtle, accomplished, and powerful. It deals unflinchingly with death but also brings life, lived and unlived, tenderly and clearly into focus. I thought it was very moving.
