Praise for All Fours

"I found myself reading All Fours in solitude, because as I read I'd started making sounds that were recognizably laughter but were also expulsions of heartbreak and what I'll call a cleansing sorrow. If the United States had the good sense to name national treasures, I'd nominate Miranda July." --Michael Cunningham, author of Day

"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

"Characteristically witty, startlingly intimate. . .This tender, strange treatise on getting out from the 'prefab structures' of a conventional life is quintessentially July."--Kirkus

"A brilliant, sexy, funny, ludicrously entertaining primal scream of a coming-of-middle-age story... Beyond-dazzling, eyes-wide-open fiction."--Booklist, STARRED review

"Hilarious, sexy, and wonderfully weird... a revelation."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"A frank novel about a midlife awakening, which is funnier and more boldly human than you ever quite expect....the bravery of --Vogue

"An irreverent and brilliantly touching story of a woman's quest for freedom." --Oprah Daily

"[July] altered my ideas of what kinds of stories were possible--something Sally Rooney and I have in common. In her second novel, July brings her singular brand of sardonic melancholia and wide-eyed wisdom to bear on this tale of a semi-famous middle-aged artist who decides to take a left turn from the left turn she had already planned."--Electric Literature

"This is a gut-punch of a novel, a must-read for every woman nearing or over forty, confronting the malaise of midlife, fertility, marriage, and menopause, packaged in July's delirious style."--LitHub
