Miranda July - The First Bad Man (2nd Hand Paperback)
A Guardian literary highlight for 2015.
A Huffington Post 'One to Watch' in 2015.
Cheryl Glickman believes in romances that span centuries and a soul that migrates between babies. She works at a women's self-defence non-profit and lives alone.
When her bosses ask if their twenty-year-old daughter, Clee, can move into her house for a while, Cheryl's eccentrically ordered world explodes. And yet it is Clee - the selfish, cruel blond bombshell - who bullies Cheryl into reality and, unexpectedly, leads her to the love of a lifetime.
Tender, gripping, slyly hilarious, infused with raging sexual fantasies and fierce maternal love, Miranda July's first novel confirms her as a spectacularly original, iconic, and important voice today, and a writer for all time.
The first novel by the filmmaker, artist and bestselling author Miranda July confirms her as a spectacularly original, iconic, and important voice today, and a writer for all time. The First Bad Man is dazzling and unforgettable.
