Description
"These delightful stories do that essential-but-rare story thing: they "surprise." They skip past the quotidian, the merely real, to the essential, and do so with a spirit of tenderness and wonder that is wholly unique. They are (let me coin a phrase) "July-esque," which is to say: infused with wonder at the things of the world." --George Saunders, author of "Tenth of December"
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.
