Review quote

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 * *
