From Julie Houts, ‘Instagram’s favourite illustrator’ (Vogue), comes a collection of brilliant and darkly comic illustrated essays, satirizing modern female identity.
Based on her popular Instagram account @jooleeloren, this collection of witty, illustrated essays centre around ‘slightly antisocial heroines’ (Refinery29), who grapple with the absurdity of life in the social media era, where the line between becoming a total ‘Girlboss’ and a twenty-first century American Psycho is razor thin.
Houts’s unique illustrations reveal the hilarious truth: there is a dark, squiggly, weird creature inside every woman, even you.
