Miranda July’s new book, IT CHOOSES YOU, comes out Nov. 15.
Via Flavorpill. “Miranda July chose people from the pages of the Penny Saver, a catalog that she increasingly turned to for help as she found herself unable to complete her screenplay for her upcoming film titled, The Future. The filmmaker and performance artist interviewed willing participants, paying them $50 to let her and a photographer into their homes so that July could talk to them about their lives and her friend could document the process through photos. In the process, July discovers a way to end her film, but you probably already knew that. “
