I loved this book. I loved how its stories are meaningful but also speckled with Miranda July’s dry humor (“As with the whole-grain bread, Carl did not initially leap into the idea with enthusiasm”) that stops them from ever being too pretentious. I love that these stories are about relationships that don’t always work. I love that July’s characters undergo real emotional turmoil. I love how there are things about these stories I don’t understand, and that I’m OK with that. Finally, I love that this paperback comes in five different colors and that mine happens to be orange.
