The First Bad Man, Miranda July

19.99 AUD
Cheryl Glickman believes in romances that span centuries and a soul that migrates between babies. She works at a women's self-defence nonprofit and lives alone. When her bosses ask if their twenty-year-old daughter, Clee, can move into her house for a while, Cheryl's eccentrically ordered world explodes. And yet it is Clee - the selfish, cruel blond bombshell - who bullies Cheryl into reality and, unexpectedly, leads her to the love of a lifetime.

Tender, gripping, slyly hilarious, infused with raging sexual fantasies and fierce maternal love, Miranda July's first novel establishes her as a spectacularly original, iconic, and important voice today, and a writer for all time.
