NAMED A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2024 BY OPRAH DAILY, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, NYLON AND THE GUARDIAN!

The New York Times bestselling author returns with an irreverently sexy, tender, hilarious and surprising novel about a woman upending her life

"A brilliant, sexy, funny, ludicrously entertaining primal scream of a coming-of-middle-age story... Beyond-dazzling, eyes-wide-open fiction."--Booklist, STARRED review

"A frank novel about a midlife awakening, which is funnier and more boldly human than you ever quite expect....the bravery of All Fours is nothing short of riveting."--Vogue

"Hilarious, sexy, and wonderfully weird... a revelation."--Publishers Weekly

A semi-famous artist announces her plan to drive cross-country, from LA to NY. Thirty minutes after leaving her husband and child at home, she spontaneously exits the freeway, checks into a nondescript motel, and immerses herself in an entirely different journey.

Miranda July's second novel confirms the brilliance of her unique approach to fiction. With July's wry voice, perfect comic timing, unabashed curiosity about human intimacy, and palpable delight in pushing boundaries, All Fours tells the story of one woman's quest for a new kind of freedom. Part absurd entertainment, part tender reinvention of the sexual, romantic, and domestic life of a forty-five-year-old female artist, All Fours transcends expectation while excavating our beliefs about life lived as a woman. Once again, July hijacks the familiar and turns it into something new and thrillingly, profoundly alive.
