Julie Houts has cultivated a devoted following as “Instagram’s favorite illustrator” (Vogue) by lampooning the conflicting messages and images women consume and share with the world every day.
A collection of darkly comic illustrated essays, Literally Me chronicles the exploits of “slightly antisocial heroines” (Refinery29) in vivid, excruciatingly funny detail, including:
- The beauty routine of a deranged bride who aspires to be “truly without flaws” on her wedding day
- What happens when Kylie Jenner has an existential crisis and can no longer “step out”
- A journey to Coachella by the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse
- The true dating confessions of a fembot
- The terrifying description for Alice Staunch’s book How to Be a Perfect Feminist
- The diary of Fiddle Ficus, a tree that lives inside a CÉLINE store, and much more
Literally Me marks the launch of a brilliant new social satirist. Julie’s singular voice and beautiful illustrations reveal the truth about the absurdity of life in the social media age: the line between becoming a total “Girlboss” and a twenty-first-century American Psycho is razor-thin.
