“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.

Miranda July knows life
This book is fantastic! Miranda says everything you think but never say aloud. Her writing brings up feelings that feel so nostalgic and pure you can't help but want to read the entire book in one sitting. A definite must-read for anyone who loves great original stories.
This book is just incredible, a reccomended buy. While the stories might seem odd, one can relate, and really feel a connection. This book really just put me at ease and let me relax while listening to the intricate lives of others.
i bought this audiobook months ago and still listen to it regularly. miranda july does such a good job that i actually prefer listening to her over reading the regular book. i normally hate audiobooks since the narrators (voice actors?) are boring, but this one's a keeper. highly recommended!
