Jeffrey Miller was born in San Francisco and educated at UC Berkeley and Harvard. He worked for the better part of a decade at the Gotham Book Mart & Gallery in New York cataloging literary archives and then began Cadmus Editions in Santa Barbara, California.

He compiled Paul Bowles' bibliography, Paul Bowles, A Descriptive Bibliography, for Black Sparrow Press and collected and edited Paul Bowles' letters, In Touch, The Letters of Paul Bowles, for Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

In an ever shrinking world he believes that voices from as many distant shores, be they geographical or personal, as might be sent forth is to the good.
