BOX GIRL: My Part-Time Job as an Art Installation

Lilibet Snellings writes in to ask if we’d share her new book, and having read the synopsis, it looks like it could definitely be of interest to Yo! readers :

I lived in Venice for nine years, and sadly, right in time for winter, moved to Chicago this fall.
This March my book BOX GIRL: My Part-Time Job as an Art Installation, was published by Soft Skull Press. It’s a collection of humorous essays about my living in Venice, and working as a “Box Girl” at The Standard Hotel, among other ridiculous jobs—going on auditions, cocktail waitressing at Chaya **Venice**, being an extra in a Smirnoff Ice commercial, being a dead person in a music video (actually directed by Venice lifer, Ace Norton), and etc. etc. etc.
Needless to say, Venice is a character in my book.
Since its publication BOX GIRL has been featured in The LA TimesThe LA Weekly and Los Angeles Magazineand is currently on Harper’s Bazaar’s “Hot List.”  Buzzfeed put Box Girl  #3 on its “22 Books You Need to Read This Summer” list and Flavorwire called the book one of its “Favorite Cultural Things of The Week.”
Of BOX GIRL, Booklist said, “A self-effacing and wryly humorous young voice in the tenor of Sloane Crosley and Lena Dunham”.
