Born and raised in New York, she now lives in Chicago.

Knisley is a good artist and entertaining storyteller, and her rather typical tale rises well above the mundane.--Richard Pachter
The cleverness here is how swiftly Knisley communicates everything... So much delivered so swiftly, so easily, Knisley's chronicles always steering clear of both the sickeningly saccharin sweet and the angst-ridden. It nestles quite naturally in between, as light and as serious, as sad and as funny as real life often is.--Richard Bruton
Knisley is a pleasurable picture-maker... and she engages directly with the issue of privilege as it pertains to her ability to take trips like this one.--Tom Spurgeon
An Age of License... has an immediacy to it that makes it... compelling.... Knisley composes each page carefully, leading the eye through a series of little moments that add up to a real story. ...[M]y guess is that she will simply continue to mature as an artist and writer. An Age of License is already evidence of that.--Brigid Alverson
