Miranda July creates fascinating work about the every day. She takes narratives which stem from quiet moments in the everyday and makes them incredibly interesting and unsettling. She is a jack of all trades, having made two feature length films, countless independent short films and performances, and has three books published. Noone belongs here more than you is an exciting book of short stories that she has written, she's really good at getting inside the mind of a seemingly banal person and injecting their lives with an element of fantasy and curiosity.
Sometimes her stories have a level of dystopian impossibility nestled into a familiar language that makes us relate to them, sometimes they hold both the language and the circumstance but bring together unlikely components. She has a knack for making things seem both fantastical and benign at the same time. In her performance her use of her voice is the most inspiring thing, she manages to embody professional women to little girls to men in a sing-song story telling manner that make her stories come to life.
I like the pace of July's films, in which nothing much happens. There is a feeling in her work which is almost infectious, it seeps into your own life and leaves a resonance of intrigue.
