Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Sylvia
Have you heard about the electric shock this book has unleashed? It deserves all the attention it's getting and other than to tell you it's an incredible exploration of desire I don't know how to describe it, so here is a warning: you need to get your seat belt on for this ride. With no idea what direction July will take you, prepare for sharp turns left and right and to be wide awake at the end of the journey. I am so jealous you have this entire book ahead of you.

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 45-year-old female artist, All Fours transcends expectations 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.
