Praise For No One Belongs Here More Than You…
"These stories are incredibly charming, beautifully written, frequently laugh-out-loud funny, and even, a dozen or so times, profound. Miranda July is a very real writer, and has one of the most original voices to appear in fiction in many years. Fans of Lorrie Moore should rub this book all over themselves -- she's got that perfect balance of humor and pathos. There has been no more enjoyable and promising a debut collection in many a moon." -- Dave Eggers
"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 In Persuasion Nation
"Miranda July's is a beautiful, odd, original voice -- seductive, sometimes erotic, and a little creepy, too." -- David Byrne
"A woman gives swimming lessons in her kitchen -- of course! Miranda July can make anything seem normal in these truly original stories. She has first-rate comic timing and a generous view of the human condition. Maybe best of all, there's joy here, too, often where you would not expect to find it." -- Amy Hempel, author of The Collected Stories of Amy Hempel
