About the Author

Lilibet Snellings was born in Georgia and raised in Connecticut. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and her MFA from the University of Southern California. For eight years she lived in Los Angeles, where she worked as a freelance writer, an on-camera reporter, a waitress, an extra in a Smirnoff Ice commercial, and a dead person in a music video. Her writing has appeared in The Huffington Post, Los Angeles Magazine, Anthem, Flaunt, and This Recording, among other publications. She currently lives in Chicago with her husband.


"One part Joan Didion, one part Holly Golightly, Lilibet Snellings has given us, in Box Girl, a hilarious and utterly original account of coming of age in L.A. Winsome, witty, and startlingly honest, she takes us on a mental journey that touches on feminism and fast food, voyeurism and advertising, going broke and breaking away. Delightful!" --Dana Goodyear, The New Yorker

"A funny, whip-smart debut, Snellings' exposé of herself and Los Angeles gives new meaning to the phrase 'think inside the box.'" --Sandra Tsing Loh, The Atlantic

"A self-effacing and wryly humorous young voice in the tenor of Sloane Crosley and Lena Dunham" --Booklist

"During an era when we're all on virtual display, Snellings writes about coming of age while on literal display--and does so with great insight and heart. --Jane Borden, author of I Totally Meant to Do That
