I took twenty seven steps and then I stopped Next to the juniper bush.Lam Kien Beauty Salon was before me,and my front door was behind me It s not agoraphobia, because I am not actually afraid of leaving the house.The fear hits about twenty seven steps away from the house, right around the juniper bush I have studied it and determined that it is not a real bush, and I have reversed this theory, and I have done everything I can not to turnaround and go home, even if it means standing there foreve [...]
I don t know what the definition of book is supposed to be, but this is a short story that has been bound That said, the story told in this book is a perfect representation, a symbiotic parallel, of its binding It is a small, beautiful, somewhat strange object that you come across suddenly, spend a few long minutes of quality time with, and then it is gone The parallels between the act of reading this story, and the content of the story itself, are fantastic Unrelatedly, I read it at a Caucus ev [...]
ok, i didn t read this one i listened to it.i have an mp3 of miranda july performing this story if you don t mind the poor quality, i can email it to you
Liked it, but is kind of pointless to search for, because as I found out after ordering a copy online , it s included in Nobody Belongs Here More Than You Nice cover though
it is very lightweight.
I was surprised to find it here, to be honest First of all, it s a very short story, and second, as someone else has already mentioned, it s included in her collection No One Belongs Here More Than You.That being said, it s an excellent little piece about a first person, agoraphobic narrator probably female and how she finds a way to expand her very small world by inflating it with a little fantasy.In places, it is slightly reminiscent of Jorge Luis Borges even one paragrapher On Exactitude in S [...]
It s only one story, but I enjoyed it I really like Miranda July s stories They are weird and familiar and touching Sometimes they touch you in funny places This book also has a really pretty pressing on its cover.
this is a sweet little zine, the story not exactly sweet, and it s not my favorite July shot story, but it is amazing.
So nice I read it twice.
A short story included in No One Belongs Here More Than You I d recommend you just get the book with this and many other stories including The Man On The Stairs.
so charming, she is.
I enjoy Miranda July and her offbeat, silly sense of humor The relationships she creates are simultaneously awkward and beautiful.
