a memoir of growing up and coming out
“An intelligent and intrepid journey exploring coming-of-sexuality . . . I devoured this book as though my life depended on it, and you will too.”—Chloe Caldwell, author of Women and I'll Tell You in Person
"Would You Rather? is an extraordinarily generous and affecting book. Katie Heaney has written something with a remarkable amount of room in it – enough for anyone to spread out and connect with. It's deeply felt, clear-eyed, joyful and illuminating. It's a beautiful and worthy companion to her first memoir, and I can't wait to see what happens next." — Mallory Ortberg, author of Texts from Jane Eyre
"What does it mean to find yourself, to know who you are and walk boldly in that truth? Would You Rather? takes readers on that journey along with Katie, reveling in the relief and glee of finding your tribe and frolics in the exquisite joy of being a woman who loves women." — Jenna Wortham, staff writer at the New York Times Magazine and co-host of the podcast "Still Processing"
"Whether you’re single or in a relationship; whether you’re queer, straight, or questioning; whether or not you’re partial to Harry Styles, you will discover something relatable and self-affirming in this honest, heartfelt, hilarious memoir." — Camille Perri, author of The Assistants
"Would You Rather? is honest and funny, often to the point of tears rolling down the cheeks. It’s a book about coming out, but also one which recognizes that asking who you are is more important than the answer, and that it's ok to have more than one." — Laura June, author of Now My Heart Is Full
