This month we'll discuss Miranda July's newest, an irreverently sexy, tender, hilarious and surprising novel about a woman upending her life, All Fours.


"Profound and bawdy and deeply human, a brilliant work of art from a completely blown-open and fearless mind."Emma Cline, New York Times bestselling author of The Guest

“I found myself reading All Fours in solitude, because as I read I’d started making sounds that were recognizably laughter but were also expulsions of heartbreak and what I’ll call a cleansing sorrow.  If the United States had the good sense to name national treasures, I’d nominate Miranda July.” —Michael Cunningham, author of Day

A semi-famous artist announces her plan to drive cross-country, from LA to NY. Thirty minutes after leaving her husband and child at home, she spontaneously exits the freeway, checks into a nondescript motel, and immerses herself in an entirely different journey.

Miranda July’s second novel confirms the brilliance of her unique approach to fiction. With July’s wry voice, perfect comic timing, unabashed curiosity about human intimacy, and palpable delight in pushing boundaries, All Fours tells the story of one woman’s quest for a new kind of freedom. Part absurd entertainment, part tender reinvention of the sexual, romantic, and domestic life of a forty-five-year-old female artist, All Fours transcends expectation while excavating our beliefs about life lived as a woman. Once again, July hijacks the familiar and turns it into something new and thrillingly, profoundly alive.
