9781938073014: It Chooses You

In the summer of 2009 Miranda July was struggling to write her second screenplay, The Future, when she began to obsessively read the PennySaver classified ads. The iconic Los Angeles newsprint booklet served a computerless demographic—a quickly disappearing group, but one rife with stories. Who was the person selling the LARGE LEATHER JACKET, $10 OR BEST OFFER? It seemed important to find out, or, at least it was a great distraction from the screenplay.

Working with photographer Brigitte Sire, July interviewed thirteen PennySaver sellers to create portraits of their surprisingly moving, profoundly specific realities. Among these was Joe, an energetic 82-year-old with his own sweetly perverse body of artwork. By the end of the summer, July had written Joe into the movie as himself and the voice of the moon.

July reveals her hilariously random and blindly faithful creative process as we travel with her all over the city, and eventually to the set of The Future (in theaters in July). Combining narrative, interviews, and photographs, this book tells the story not only of the making of a movie in Los Angeles, but of the city itself.

About the Author:

Miranda July is the author of No One Belongs Here More Than You, winner of the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s, and The Paris Review.

Her second film, The Future, was released this summer.

Review:

Laden with offbeat, emotionally isolated characters...mordantly funny * * Vogue on No One Belongs Here More Than You * * Weird doesn't begin to cover it, but wonderful (in the literal sense of the word, as in full of wonder) does * * Elle on No One Belongs Here More Than You * * Incredibly charming, beautifully written, frequently laugh-out-loud funny, and even, a dozen or so times, profound -- Dave Eggers on No One Belongs Here More Than You Their stories are weird, touching and, in the case of Ron...unsettling. No less compelling than the characters themselves, though, is July's scrutiny of what she's doing. * * Observer * * The book is amusing...but more than that, it is weirdly heartbreaking. I was touched by the terrible sadness of foundering lives observed up close and sympathetically. * * Herald * * July's empathy and obsession with human connectivity bring real warmth. [It Chooses You] provides an intriguing insight into American society. * * Big Issue * * A moving portrait of 13 LA lives and the writer's own journey, which is made all the more awesome by her hilarious, deadpan writing style. * * Cooler Magazine * *
