Literally Me

Literally Me

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE. or
EXIST. SMURK. LURK


Julie Houts has cultivated a devoted following as ‘Instagram’s favourite 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 daily 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 the Perfect Feminist
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 21st-century American Psycho is razor-thin.
