    1. For me, this book was two stories away from being downright terrible One story, Mon Plaisir, I thought was excellent Another I found myself enjoying quite a bit Others contained passages that made me grimace Physically Like, I wanted to turn my head away Instead, I just dog eared the pages that contained the shitty passages My knees buckled, I went down to the floor I cried in English, I cried in French, I cried in all the languages, because tears are the same all around the world Esperanto and [...]

    2. I bought this book cause I was walking through a bookstore with a friend of mine a friend I adore than newborn puppies and tiny rabbits hopping in fields of grass, and she said, MIRANDA JULY I love her She made the movie You, Me, and Everyone We Know I hadn t seen the movie, but I remember seeing an ad in the paper and thinking, I want to see that movie And it was because of that, and because I adore this girl than newborn puppies, and rabbits hopping in fields of grass, and moonlit nights, an [...]

    3. This was so not what I was expecting No One Belongs Here More Than You has got to be one of the worst books I ve read in years I can t even recall the last time I was this appalled by a short story collection.I started off my reading experience thinking this would follow the usual way of having no real structure to the stories but still including great quotes to ponder And at first, that s exactly what was being delivered to me with pieces of writing such as They seem easy to write, but that s t [...]

    4. Note If I could fashion a little half star and put it in the rating, I would give this book at 3.5.Miranda July she s the lightning rod hipster conversation of the year I say her name at dinners and people rise from their chairs to damn or bless her They pace and sweat and expound upon why she is the worst best thing to happen to fiction in eons They yell She s the next Lorrie Moore or She s like those people who try to imitate Lorrie Moore and miss what s really good about her Sometimes they ve [...]

    5. This is the first and last time I will ever write these words Man, I really want to read a Nicholas Sparks novel right now It doesn t have to be one of his, specifically, but he is the go to guy for cliched and typical romances between Normal Attractive White People And that s what this book makes me want to read Something where all the characters are well adjusted adults without any weird fetishes or deep seated psychological issues, and a nice couple gets together and, after some formulaic ten [...]

    6. I hate to say this, but I really did not enjoy the experience of reading past the first two stories or so After a while I just couldn t figure out the appeal of a book that is packed cover to cover with disingenuous, childlike, wide eyed, self destructive women who are really just ciphers that things happen to Okay, I take that back, of course that s appealing to people, have I never watched porn or Charmed But all the narrators would say things like, After my boyfriend was incredibly mean to me [...]

    9. This book was perplexingly good The best adjective I can come up with for these stories is sharp Not sharp like clever or whatever, but sharp like sharp, like a knife or thorns or something that actually cuts you The stories all hurt, really, which is why I say perplexingly good I mean, it s hard to say you like something that leaves you feeling like you just got a hole punched in you Everyone is just so lonely, so unloved, so despairing.Anyway though, I did like it A lot Something That Needs No [...]

    10. I was torn between wanting to punch her writing in the throat, and loving it to shreds I ve changed my rating a million times and probably forever will It s hard to rate a book of short stories like this one, some of them were a straight out 1, others were a 5 Sometimes I feel July is pretentious, other times I get excited that I m not the only person in the world that is so god damned weird Her thought processes go in places that mine do I was the kind of kid who failed school not because I was [...]

    11. If you look in the dictionary under the word quirky , you will find the definition of that word also, Miranda July.A few years ago I read The First Bad Man, which both delighted and totally weirded me out But I guess I wasn t weirded out so much as to turn me off the idea of reading her short story collection.It think it s because I loved her short story, Roy Spivey It convinced me that she s probably better at the short form So I had high hopes for this collection But though this group of stori [...]

    12. Miranda July s radio pieces are excellent She tells her off beat and romantic or oddly sinister stories, dramatizes quirks as real characters and situations, and enchants you with her squeaky little voice Nothing makes sense, but nothing has to make sense You just have to listen and be carried away I thought her movie was pretty good too, although right on the edge of being twee and pretentious You see, when you take a picture of something you give it weight You re saying this moment is importan [...]

    13. Missed ConnectionAuthor exorcises demons as characters search for loveby Avishay ArtsyEverybody gets lonely sometimes, and Miranda July crams as many forms of loneliness she can think of in her first collection of stories The inhabitants of July s imagination reach out to strangers in hopes of genuine connection Unable to find it, they often use sex to simulate closeness A teacher seduces a 14 year old boy in her special needs class, and no one notices because nobody really cares about anyone bu [...]

    14. One of the worst collections I ve ever finished I bought this one in hardcover when it first came out and was excited to read it because it had great buzz and won the Frank O Connor prize Sadly, I struggled through every story Perhaps I will enjoy this on some future reread and I m even willing to concede that I might be tone deaf to this author at this time, but I suspect she was given a free pass on her fiction because of her success as a filmmaker The cover blurbs trumpet her originality but [...]

    15. I swear to Christ if I read one slim selfsatisfied volume of witty short fiction where everybody talks like a fucking Grad Student I m going to hit myself in the brain with a ballpeen hammer until I m illiterate.

    16. I came fully prepared to get way into this book, but so far I don t like the stories I ve tried I really loved her movie, and I remember liking her performance stuff back in Portland, during those so long ago, simpler times I ll try a few of these, but so far I m surprised by how draggy the ones I ve tried seem to me not like fun drag queen draggy, just a drag kind of draggy I was worried they d be too whimsical, but actually the feeling I get while reading is sort of of the opposite bored and [...]

    17. Expelling the Dust The Man on the Stairs book club read The Man on the Stairs is an extended snapshot in a woman s life, in which a familiar July gives it a tired, worn out feeling, like the T shirt the woman is wearing, doubtless ugly and shapeless, unloved, a stultifying comfort zone sequence of introspection culminates in an encounter that takes on a mythical as a focus for culturally cultivated fears and a seed of exasperated, unheroic profoundly female courage and symbolic of the emotional [...]

    20. A quirky, lovely quick read definitely recommended July is great at mimicing on paper the ramblings inside a person s head, so much of which is absurd or silly, but which occasionally stumbles onto something profound and true To make it impressive, she manages to do this and keep the stories concise at the same time while admittedly most of the characters come to assume similar voices, she nonetheless creates complex, unique narratives in often fewer than ten pages As a result, you can almost h [...]

    21. okay i rarely give up on books and when i do i rarely give them ratings this is because i hate when people have only read like the first 100 pgs of like gravity s rainbow or infinite jest and because they have taken all of the 2 hours it takes to read that they think it qualifies them to then pass judgement on the whole book which took me a good forty hours to read, and that i loved but lets face it, miranda july is no pynchon or dfw that said i m not here to bash the book of stories, i only got [...]

Icky ew.My housemate recommended this with this is so sweet, it will restore your faith in humanity I am now reconsidering how much I like my housemate, and will never rely on her for a character reference I ve read about half of the short stories in this book, and I don t want to read any Every short story is a first person narrative from someone who is desperate, odd, lonely, delusional, and slightly creepy From the person so in love with her neighbour that she leans her head on his shoulder [...]

    24. I have no idea if Miranda July in achieving something that looks spontaneous wrote these pieces like Mozart, in one stroke of the pen perfectly formed, or if she laboriously wrote and rewrote like Beethoven until each sentence followed the next perfectly to achieve a hard won sense of spontaneity Whatever the case, the results do feel spontaneous something that in and of itself is only as good as the content, of course At first, I was not warming to July s style, which struck me as the bastard c [...]

    26. Not everyone has to be literate, there are some great reasons for resisting language, and one of them is love So goes the lilting logic in Miranda July s self fashioned world of wonder and regret and pain and hilarity One wishes continually when flipping through this book that he could be part of her microcosm Playing observer to the tragicomic plights of her characters is damn good fun, though.The wrenching yet light The Shared Patio leads off, sufficiently whelming from the start July renders [...]

    27. When I first heard about Miranda July from hipsters and hipster haters I wanted nothing to do with her, assuming she overwrites like Diablo Cody I couldn t have been wrong I watched You, Me and Everyone We Know LOVED IT Watched The Future really LIKED it it s a tougher one to watch and not give into sadness, but still quite brilliant Loved a little story she just wrote for The New Yorker too Finally, I got my hands on this book There s a lot of praise on the back of the paperback I bought and I [...]

    29. After hearing so many good things about this book, I was disappointed to find that it was actually pretty awful The characters mostly women are just so unbelievable Unbelievable in the sense that they don t seem like real people that the rest of us know Maybe it s just my background that I couldn t identify with these characters and thus get into the stories I prefer a combination of good character development and plot usually This had relatively no character development they were weird, detache [...]
