  • We recommend you buy this edition of It Chooses You from our bookstore partner, Phinney Books, if you want to be on the same page as everyone else during discussions. 
  • You do not need to read any of the book before the first meeting. We will encounter its opening pages together.
  • Learn about the host of this book club here.

 

Miranda July has published a novel and a book of short stories, but It Chooses You is something different. This one is almost uncategorizable.


You could say it's a memoir about making a movie, or an inside look at the creative process. You could say it's a book of interviews of eccentric people July met while driving around LA answering ads in the PennySaver. You could say it's a book of photos.


All of those things are true. And yet none of them explain the utter genius of this book. We will read it together over three weeks, and then watch (on our own) the movie it describes creating (The Future) and discuss it during our fourth and final meeting.


If anyone has seen July's just-released feature film Kajillionaire, we can discuss that too!
