No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July

No One Belongs Here More Than You

Miranda July

Through these edgy short stories I found myself falling into the lives of those who are lonely, frustrated and more than a little odd. They often live in their own little fantasies, but are unable to escape the grim realities of their real lives. Prepare to be made uncomfortable yet moved, to be sad but still smiling as you trip easily through this raw, witty collection.

Extract

We both fantasize about other people when we're having sex, but he likes to tell me who the other people are, and I don't. Why should I? It's my own private business. It's not my fault he gets off on having me know. He likes to report it the second he comes, like a cat presenting the gift of a dead bird. I never asked for it.
