Lust, Love and Understanding

No One Belongs Here More Than You - Stories by Miranda July is creepy, erotic, and mesmerizing. I'm convinced that she is one of the coolest human beings ever to grace the face of the earth. This book is like the literary equivalent of Radiohead's OK Computer. When that album came out it seemed straight out of left field... it baffled some fans, while others thought it was pure genius. Apparently this book is having the same affect, yet I'm having a hard time understanding how anyone can deny the charm, originality and appeal of July's quirky, yet seductive prose. These stories are completely enthralling, albeit a little strange at times... This is an excellent example of creative fiction at its best. A must read!
