      I took twenty-seven steps and then I stopped. Next to the juniper bush.Lam Kien Beauty Salon was before me,and my front door was behind me. It’s not agoraphobia, because I am not actually afraid of leaving the house.The fear hits about twenty-seven steps away from the house, right around the juniper bush. I have studied it and determined that it is not a real bush, and I have reversed this theory, and I have done everything I can not to turnaround and go home, even if it means standing there f [...]

      I don't know what the definition of book is supposed to be, but this is a short story that has been bound. That said, the story told in this "book" is a perfect representation, a symbiotic parallel, of its binding. It is a small, beautiful, somewhat strange object that you come across suddenly, spend a few long minutes of quality time with, and then it is gone. The parallels between the act of reading this story, and the content of the story itself, are fantastic. Unrelatedly, I read it at a Cau [...]

      this is a sweet little 'zine, the story not exactly sweet, and it's not my favorite July shot story, but it is amazing.

      A short story included in No One Belongs Here More Than You. I'd recommend you just get the book with this and many other stories (including The Man On The Stairs).

      I enjoy Miranda July and her offbeat, silly sense of humor. The relationships she creates are simultaneously awkward and beautiful.
