■Miranda July ■■■
Miranda July (1974- ) is a performing artist, writer,
actress and film director. Born Miranda Jennifer Grossinger,
she works under the surname of "July," which can be traced
to a character from a "girlzine" Miranda created with high
school friend Johanna Fateman, called Snarla.
Miranda July was born in Barre, Vermont, the daughter
of Lindy Hough and Richard Grossinger. Her parents, who
taught at Goddard College at the time, are both writers.
In 1974 they founded North Atlantic Books, a publisher
of alternative health, martial arts, and spiritual titles.
Miranda was encouraged to work on her short fiction by
author and friend of a friend, Rick Moody.
Her work has been presented at sites such as The Kitchen,
the Guggenheim Museum, and in two Whitney Biennials.
She wrote, directed, and starred in her first feature-length
film, Me and You and Everyone We Know, which received a
special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and
the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
July's short fiction has been published in The New Yorker,
The Paris Review, Harper's, and Zoetrope, and has been
heard on Public Radio. Raised in Berkeley, California,
she lives in Los Angeles.
Miranda grew up in Berkeley, California, where she first
began writing plays and staging them at the all-ages club
924 Gilman. She attended The College Preparatory School
in Oakland for high school. She later attended UC Santa Cruz,
dropping out in her sophomore year.
After leaving college, she moved to Portland, Oregon and
took up performance art. Her performances were successful;
she has been quoted as saying she has not worked a day job
since she was 23 years old.
