About this title


Eric Miller’s adventurous collection of essays, The Reservoir, explores human love in its diverse manifestations. Miller’s elegant prose weaves strands of memory, history, war, childhood, family, creativity and affection to form an evocative tapestry of past and present. From a fantasia on Lady Simcoe of Upper Canada in "The Fifth of April 1793" to a study of paternal love in "Fredericton and Fatherhood", Miller finds humour, depth and meaning in the relations which link us to each other and to history. His essay, "The Berlin Creepy Show", starts at the Brandenburg gate but sweeps through time from the author’s childhood, to Germany at war, to the present day macabre. The final essay, "The Reservoir" meditates on filial love as a father dies and his son recalls the opaque lessons that his parent once obliquely imparted. This thoughtful volume of essays will resonate deeply with readers and belongs with the best of Canadian creative non-fiction.
