In 2009, July was struggling to write her second screenplay when she began to obsessively read classified ads. Working with a photographer, July interviewed 13 "PennySaver" sellers to create portraits of their surprisingly moving, profoundly specific realities.

In the summer of 2009 Miranda July was struggling to write her second screenplay, "The Future," when she began to obsessively read the "PennySaver" classified ads. The iconic Los Angeles newsprint booklet served a computerless demographic--a quickly disappearing group, but one rife with stories. Who was the person selling the LARGE LEATHER JACKET, $10 OR BEST OFFER? It seemed important to find out, or, at least it was a great distraction from the screenplay.
Working with photographer Brigitte Sire, July interviewed thirteen "PennySaver" sellers to create portraits of their surprisingly moving, profoundly specific realities. Among these was Joe, an energetic 82-year-old with his own sweetly perverse body of artwork. By the end of the summer, July had written Joe into the movie as himself and the voice of the moon.
July reveals her hilariously random and blindly faithful creative process as we travel with her all over the city, and eventually to the set of The Future (in theaters in July). Combining narrative, interviews, and photographs, this book tells the story not only of the making of a movie in Los Angeles, but of the city itself.
