''In L.A., you have a lot of personal space compared to other cities. What’s challenging is that most of the action takes place in the world of your house, so I always admire when people say, “Oh, the city was a character in the story,” because I have no idea how one would go about that. I live in L.A. and mostly ignore it. With New York, it’s very hard to ignore that you’re there. It’s right there with you in your own home. So maybe in that sense, L.A. allows for this less interrupted internal world.'' - Miranda July
