Miranda July’s First Novel Finds a Careful System at Risk

"Me and You and Everyone We Know," the fifth of Miranda July's ten film projects so far, won the Caméra d'Or at Cannes. In addition to filmmaking, she's put together wide-ranging visual and performance works and even the recent mobile-app-based conceptual piece, "Somebody." Her lauded short fiction evokes worlds both highly recognizable and slightly askew. She reads here from her new (debut) novel, "The First Bad Man."
