Item Details

Award-winning filmmaker and performing artist Miranda July brings her extraordinary talents to the page in a startling, sexy, and tender collection. In these stories, July gives the most seemingly insignificant moments a sly potency. A benign encounter, a misunderstanding, a shy revelation can reconfigure the world. Her characters engage awkwardly - they are sometimes too remote, sometimes too intimate. With great compassion and generosity, July reveals their idiosyncrasies and the odd logic and longing that govern their lives. No One Belongs Here More Than You is a stunning debut, the work of a writer with a spectacularly original and compelling voice.

July's stories are a little odd. Unfortunately, her strong sensibility makes them all seem too much the same.

This book was suggested to me by a complete stranger. I'm glad I decided to check it out. It was very different and strange but in a good, refreshing sort of way. Some of the stories I didn't care for too much but they were still interesting to read. Some of them I thought were great! I'm glad July has the guts to write about things that are very real life but are not very "main stream".

A stark short story book that raises the question yet again, "How do writers think these things up?!"

So beautifully twisted in an innocent kind of way.
