Does /lit/ enjoy the writing of the artist Miranda July?

Just finished reading "No one belongs here more than you", a collection of short stories and thought they were remarkably good.

What should I read next?
>>
yes, her short stories are quite good but very self-conciously twee. still, very good.

you should read nick flynn's another bullshit night in suck city and lolito

Thanks for the recommendations. I rather enjoy the twee

she is cute :3

No One Belongs Here More Than You was one of the best books I read last year.

Edgar Keret writes in a similar vein, but with a flair for the surreal. The Girl on the Fridge is good.

>thought they were remarkably good

I found them very hit or miss. Some were brilliant ("Something that Needs Nothing"), others were garbage ("Majesty"). I think she relies too much on a folksy, naivette to power her stories and that's a crutch if you want to put out consistently good work.
>>
I like her as a writer, really dislike her as a film maker.
>>
forever

I've had The First Bad Man on my to-read list since it came out, but haven't gotten around to it. Has anyone here read it? Did you like it?
