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.
