It is featured in From Sorrow's Well: The Poetry of Hayden Carruth (University of Michigan Press 2013), edited by Shaun T. Griffin.

Miller was also interviewed by National Public Radio about his recent book, Collage of Myself: Walt Whitman and the Making of Leaves of Grass (University of Nebraska Press 2010). Excerpts from the interview will be used in a forthcoming edition of NPR’s nationally-syndicated program Studio 360.
