No One Belongs Here More Than My Therapist’s Wife

By

It’s funny, I love Miranda July’s stories but Gordon Haber at Bookslut is insightful about her varied titles:

“We Are Vaguely Included seems to show the influence of Miranda July, who has demonstrated talent in numerous genres while consistently formulating vaguely inclusive titles. July has a performance piece, Things We Don’t Understand and Are Definitely Not Going to Talk About; a film, Me and You and Everyone We Know; and a story collection, No One Belongs Here More Than You. Just typing these titles makes me feel like I’m at an extremely cool party where everyone, at some point or another, mentions their therapist.”

He also brought up a point I made a while back about the plague of possessive titles in books.
