It Chooses You

A book review from one of my favorite readers:*

Hello fellow Miranda July lover/person I've never met,

I just read her book It Chooses You, a book she wrote about finishing the script for The Future. It was incredibly sad, inspiring, and comforting. I highly recommend it. 

I found it to be a great meditation on process and discipline and distraction and muse-chasing.

I bought it at Skylight at 2pm and just finished it now. And I went to the spa and the grocery store with my husband somewhere in the middle, so it's not much of a commitment. 

Also, I cried.

*Who am I kidding? You are all my favorite readers.


  1. HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS? I haven't bought any Miranda July since No One Belongs Here More Than You

  2. I'm reading this now, and it's fantastic!

  3. yes! more book reviews pleeasse!

  4. My husband bought this for my for our anniversary. Just finished it last night - I, too, cried.
