MIRANDA JULY: IT CHOOSES YOU

Miranda July has a new book coming out on November 15! CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY THIS YEAR!!

"Miranda July chose people from the pages of the Penny Saver, a catalog that she increasingly turned to for help as she found herself unable to complete her screenplay for her upcoming film titled, The Future. The filmmaker and performance artist interviewed willing participants, paying them $50 to let her and a photographer into their homes so that July could talk to them about their lives and her friend could document the process through photos. In the process, July discovers a way to end her film, but you probably already knew that." - source Flavorwire

  2. I know I'm late to comment on this, but just wanted to mention that Miranda wrote a piece in The New Yorker an issue or two back. A one-page memoir of her shoplifting days. You can probably find it on their website, if you're interested.
