Choose Miranda July’s “It Chooses You”

I was lucky enough last night to see the illustrious Miranda July at Symphony Space for a reading and performance of her new book It Chooses You.

I have always admired the honesty, earnestness, and creativity that goes into her work. This book is non-fiction and is essentially a  journal of her experience answering Pennysaver ads in LA.  She treats the people she writes about with respect and kindness, and, in the process, reveals how extraordinary they are.

If you’ve seen the film, The Future, you will see how the she integrated the project into the script of the film. Check it out.
