Miranda July is an acclaimed filmmaker, director, actress, artist and best-selling writer. She wrote, directed, and starred in The Future, and her first feature-length film, Me and You and Everyone We Know, received a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Caméra d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Her collection of stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and has been published in 20 countries. Her latest project is a new messaging app, Somebody. Her novel The First Bad Man will be published by Canongate in February 2015.

She talks with Zoe Williams about her work and especially her new novel. The First Bad Man is a tender, gripping, slyly hilarious story, infused with raging sexual obsession and fierce maternal love, which confirms Miranda July as a spectacularly original, iconic, and important voice today, and a writer for all time.
