Melissa: Having lived where Just Under the Clouds takes place, almost all the settings in the book are based on real-life places. I stopped every day at a shop like Miss Li’s grocery (owned by an actual Miss Li).

I crossed over the 9th street bridge to find the houseboats and hidden spaces along the Gowanus canal.
