Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling debut novel from Miranda July, acclaimed filmmaker, artist, and author, whose new movie Kajillionaire is in theatres now.

Cheryl Glickman believes in romances that span centuries and a soul that migrates between babies. She works at a women’s self-defense nonprofit and lives alone. When her bosses ask if their twenty-year-old daughter, Clee, can move into her house for a while, Cheryl’s eccentrically ordered world explodes. And yet it is Clee—the selfish, cruel blond bombshell—who bullies Cheryl into reality and, unexpectedly, leads her to the love of a lifetime.

Tender, gripping, slyly hilarious, infused with raging sexual fantasies and fierce maternal love, Miranda July’s first novel confirms her as a spectacularly original, iconic, and important voice today, and a writer for all time.

Buffy Skywalker ,

You'll want to keep reading and you won't know why.

It's the painful honesty of all the ways women lie to themselves, are socially influenced and silenced, and are forced to retreat internally that will keep you reading. [the wallpaper] some patterns were by accident and some things were conscious choices, and it's all just as ugly-painful as the human experience. There are some beautiful parts if you can squint hard enough to see past all of the poor design choices and make them out. This book is special and it is a "good book" and I think you won't regret reading it, but you won't know what to make of it either.

Waste of time and money

Really inventive

I loved this book. It was an odd story but underneath had a straightforward message about the human path. The humor was very sly and quite funny. Even though the characters were fantastical, I began to really like them. A great change from the regular best seller.
