No One Belongs Here More Than You

Miranda July

  • awardWinner, Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award
  • 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.

    Praise for Miranda July
    andNo One Belongs Here More Than You

    ‘I was both inspired and jealous. Sweet, tender, innovative and sexy in a sometimes slightly disturbing way, Miranda July’s is a beautiful, odd, original voice?seductive, sometimes erotic, and a little creepy, too.’

    ‘These stories are incredibly charming, beautifully written, frequently laugh-out-loud funny…Miranda July’s got that perfect balance of humor and pathos.’

    ‘Astonishingly good…Laden with offbeat, emotionally isolated characters…its mordantly funny commentary on modern-day relating is classic July.’

    ‘July’s stories are sexy and fast, magically creating narrative.’

    ‘July’s emotional register is familiar from her film Me and You and Everyone We Know, but it’s a capacious one: wry, wistful, vulnerable, tough and tender, It fully accommodates moments of bleak human reversals. These stories are as immediate and distressing as confessionals.’
