"These vignettes are as relatable as they are distinctly O'Connell: a chicken-tending, sci-fi reading, family-loving, funny feminist trying to make it out of the house with her pants on, or better yet, a pocketed skirt. She is the Facebook friend you've always wanted." —Alena Dillon, author of Mercy House and My Body Is A Big Fat Temple

Welcome to A.J. O'Connell's A Perfect Facebook Life (but not her real one): a collection of poems, micro-fiction, and very short plays that started their lives as statuses. No, really. Explore the problem with small-town Facebook groups, how it feels to get to an age when you've got a Paying Taxes playlist on Spotify, and what it truly means to be the #WorldsOkayestMom with this short, funny take on modern domestic life.

About the Author

A.J. O’Connell joined social media back in the mid-‘90s, when she barely had a real-life human adult identity for herself. Since her first cringy forays into chatrooms, she’s been on AIM, Friendster, MySpace, blogged, tweeted, has been on the ‘gram, and, obviously, Facebook. (She doesn’t get TikTok, don’t @ her.) She writes things in real life, too. She’s a freelance journalist and marketing writer, and her two novellas, Beware the Hawk and The Eagle & The Arrow, were published by VBP Press. A.J. lives in Connecticut with her family and entirely too many pets.

Praise For…

"A Perfect Facebook Life is a wild, hilarious, fun ride of a book, written with enormous vitality by AJ O’Connell. Her account of the extraordinary moments a youngish, okay-ish mom and spouse and working woman discovers in ordinary tasks will astonish you even as you nod in recognition, cheering on her wit. O’Connell has written one of those rare volumes: an authentically original book every reader will enjoy chronicling one woman’s everyday survival-- and her delightful triumph." —Gina Barreca, editor of Fast Funny Women and Distinguished Professor of English at UConn
