Winner, Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award.
Award-winning filmmaker and performing artist Miranda July brings her extraordinary talents to the page in this startling, beguiling 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 compassion and humour, she reveals their idiosyncrasies and the odd logic and longing that govern their lives. No One Belongs Here More Than You is a stunning debut, blisteringly good-the work of a writer with a spectacularly original and compelling voice.
'These stories are incredibly charming, beautifully written, frequently laugh-out-loud funny…profound. Miranda July is a very real writer, and has one of the most original voices to appear in fiction in many years…There has been no more enjoyable and promising a debut collection in many a moon.' Dave Eggers
