The New York Times bestselling author returns with an irreverently sexy, tender, hilarious and surprising novel about a woman upending her life
"A giddy, bold, mind-blowing tour de force by one of our most important literary writers."--George Saunders, Booker-Prize winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo
"Profound and bawdy and deeply human, a brilliant work of art from a completely blown open and fearless mind."--Emma Cline, New York Times bestselling author of The Guest "A frank and delirious ode to love in all its forms... just as brilliantly funny and strangely touching as you might expect." --Vogue
A semi-famous artist announces her plan to drive cross-country, from LA to NY. Thirty minutes after leaving her husband and child at home, she spontaneously exits the freeway, beds down in a nondescript motel, and immerses herself in a temporary reinvention that turns out to be the start of an entirely different journey.
Miranda July's second novel confirms the brilliance of her unique approach to fiction. With July's wry voice, perfect comic timing, unabashed curiosity about human intimacy, and palpable delight in pushing boundaries, All Fours
tells the story of one woman's quest for a new kind of freedom. Part absurd entertainment, part tender reinvention of the sexual, romantic, and domestic life of a forty-five-year-old female artist, All Fours
transcends expectation while excavating our beliefs about life lived as a woman. Once again, July hijacks the familiar and turns it into something new and thrillingly, profoundly alive.
