I love Miranda July. A couple weeks back, I ordered her new book from Amazon but it was taking forever to arrive. Then last night I had a very vivid dream that the delay in delivery was due to the fact that she was hand-delivering the books to random people who had purchased it on Amazon.com as a publicity-stunt/performance-art-piece, since she is kind of prone to that sort of thing. In my dream she came to my door and handed me my book and said "Here is my book that you ordered," and she had a camera man with her to film the whole exchange and she asked "Would you like me to sign it for you?" and I said "No, but I'd like him to sign it," and I handed it to the camera man and we laughed and laughed because in dreams sometimes retarded things seem brilliant.
Anyway, I woke up and instead of hoping I would receive my book in the mail that day, I was hoping I wouldn't, because then it might mean that my dream was a premonition and that not only would I get to meet Miranda July in person, but I was prescient to boot.
But I got it in the mail today. So I'm not prescient. And I don't get to meet Miranda July, who's movie You Me and Everyone We Know is one of my favorite films of all time and has already become a sort of Internet legend due to its famous "Poop Back and Forth, Forever" scene, which was brilliant, and not in a retarded dream kind of way:
Anyway, you should buy her book, and not just because of the clever way in which she promoted it, but because I said so.

Just saw her at a reading here in Seattle. She was great. I want to shrink her down and put her on top of a strawberry and eat her up.

I love that movie, too. She was in P-town for a reading too, but I missed it of course.
Looking forward to your review of the book...wait, do you do reviews still?
