Book Report: "No One Belongs Here More Than You"

Right now, I am reading "No One Belongs Here More Than You" (2008) by Miranda July.

The book is a collection of short stories about intimacy. Touching, humorous, disturbing, easy to read. The author's voice is good and she treats her weird characters with compassion. Very good to read anytime, the pages and time flies by. Well written, with good plots, it isn't cheap, but it isn't a grand commitment to read the entire book, either.

Maybe it is a summer book because it is about emotions and how they drive us. We usually think of summer books as emotional. We think of summer as a time for expressing heightened emotions, perhaps a time out of time, or maybe a time for play, the only season we allow play and emotion.

The book is on Amazon.

You might know the author from the movie, "Me and You and Everyone We Know" (2005). July wrote, directed, and starred in the movie.
