At the start of his novel, The Passage of Love, Alex Miller's fictional self remembers his yearning as a 16-year-old for the "possibilities of the empty horizon". And he begins to write, to answer for himself the question: "what was it that I had found over the horizon line of nothingness? ...grace or damnation?" Fiona Parker talks with this celebrated writer about his life and work revealed with magnificent control in this most personal of novels.
