#4

13 May

I’ll admit that perhaps I’m a little star struck, having met Miranda July for about 30 seconds at a book reading at Colette in Paris (she read her stories in english, then listened to them in french – a strange experience (so she told me, swoon)). But there is something so rad about someone with their fingers in so many pies; well,’pies’ sounds a bit too trite for Miranda July, more like soufflés, perfectly fluffy ones. I guess she is feminist to me because she balances so perfectly in that grey in-between space where women actually have a choice, and have control, that according to Wolf, is far too limited. Her art, movies, and writing all take that space and pull it; manipulate it into something bigger, warmer, and more certain. And I guess maybe that’s what feminism comes down to?
