About the Book

The New York Times–bestselling author of The First Bad Man returns with an irreverently sexy, tender, hilarious, and surprising novel about a woman upending her life

A semifamous artist announces her plan to drive cross-country, from LA to New York. Twenty 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.

Raven Bookseller Reviews

Miranda July’s All Fours hilariously subverts the coming-of-age road trip novel. Its narrator, a semi-famous 45-year-old artist, is facing a chilling marriage and the frightening prospect of perimenopause. To deal with this, she decides to drive from LA to New York. She makes it as far as Monrovia, 30 minutes away. The three weeks she spends in there in an anonymous motel disrupt everything she knows about desire, sex, art, and love. July tackles these big questions in a searchingly hilarious fashion, with several laugh-out-loud sequences and more than a few unforgettably weird sex scenes. Thank god for Miranda July.
