Reviews

* There's beauty and tenderness here as well as great wit and, like the best stories, a delicious sense of the unexpected Metro * Intimate, original and more than a little strange, these are tales about people who are baffled and often overwhelmed by life. Daily Mail * Blisteringly good Guardian * July's short fiction is quirky and self-consciously postmodern in style ... The best of her stories adds a depth of emotional truth which can persuade you to believe in her most oddball worlds. -- Helen Chappell Tribune * Magically oddball ... rarely has such a thing been so entertaining Time Out * A stunning collection ... from a wonderfully quirky and highly original writer Venue * Surprising, amusing and touching... they'll fill you with a renewed sense of wonder at the world Venue * These stories are incredibly charming, beautifully written, frequently laugh-out-loud funny, and even, a dozen or so times, profound -- DAVE EGGERS * Astonishingly good ... mordantly funny Vogue * July's inventive tales swing from laugh-out-loud funny to heart-clenchingly sad Daily Telegraph * Miranda July's is a beautiful, odd, original voice - seductive, sometimes erotic, and a little creepy too -- DAVID BYRNE * Wonderful Elle * The stories have a frank, direct tone that makes their loopiness charming ... July delights in revealing the unseen awkwardness of the everyday, and this collection is both resonant and complex Financial Times * July's writing has a whimsical, dreamlike quality ... she has an understanding of human truths and an extraordinary honesty about our wish for acceptance Guardian * Charming and funny Daily Telegraph * Exquisite LA Times * July's stories startle us at every turn, sometimes by their sexual frankness, sometimes by passages of impossibly lush eloquence ... and very often by their inventiveness San Francisco Chronicle * Who will Miranda July's work appeal to? To borrow the name of her lovely first film, Me and You and Everyone We Know Entertainment Weekly * Moving ... this collection features characters laughing, crying and thinking. Read the stories and you'll do the same i-D * A considered and engaging new talent Spectator
