JULY IN JUNE
Realizing that it’s been over two weeks since we’ve posted anything here about Miranda July, whose new blog for her film Me and You and Everyone We Know contains pictures of her receiving the Camera d’Or at Cannes from the once-in-a-lifetime pairing of Abbas Kiorastami and Milla Jovovich, I took notice of an email from Cloverfield Press. July’s new book, The Boy from Lam Kien, is now available from Cloverfield, the small press started by film producer and Sundance Lab programmer Matthew Greenfield and writer Laurence Dumortier. The book is described as “a strange and lovely story about an agoraphobe’s encounter with a young boy.” Also now out from the press is Mary Rechner’s book Hot Springs. Both books are available by mail order by clcking the links above.
Both books sell for $15.00 and are issued in numbered editions of 600, and there will be a reading with July, Rechner, Dumortier, and Carol Treadwell (The Museum of Contemporary Art) at Skylight Books, 1818 N. Vermont Avenue in L.A. on June 24th at 7:30 p.m.
