LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE. Or EXIST. SMIRK. LURK.

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 C#65533;LINE 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.
