The First Bad Man

Miranda July


The first novel by the filmmaker, artist and bestselling author Miranda July confirms her as a spectacularly original, iconic, and important voice today, and a writer for all time. ‘The First Bad Man’ is dazzling and unforgettable.

 “’The First Bad Man’ brings together all of July's talents - it's a book that must be read, a book that must be purchased - in duplicate - one for you, one for a friend. Don't think you can loan this book - you'll never get it back” - A. M. HOMES, author of ‘This Book Will Save Your Life and May We Be Forgiven’
