Miranda July is a filmmaker, artist, and writer. Her videos, performances, and web-based projects have been presented at the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum, and in two Whiteney Biennials. July wrote, directed, and starred in her first feature-length film, Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005), which won a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and four prizes at the Cannes Film Festival, including the Caméra d’Or. Her fiction has appeared in The Paris Review, Harper’s, and The New Yorker; her collection of short stories, No One belongs Here More Than You (Scribner, 2007), won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and has been published in twenty countries. Her novel The First Bad Man is due out in January 2015. As actress Lena Dunham says about the book, “Miranda July’s ability to pervert norms while embracing what makes us normal is astounding.”
