Miranda July is a marvel. Her work is poignant, funny,personal and universal.
She recently read along with some superb actors excerpts from her non fiction book It Chooses You as part of the Selected Shorts series.
By way of procrastination, July began reading the Penny Saver and eventually called and met sellers, documenting it all with a photographer.
The resulting conversations are at times silly, creepy, hilarious, touching, heart breaking and exhilarating.
Not only did the evening strengthen my respect for her but it introduced me to the Selected Shorts radio program whose archives I plan to explore soon.
