Publisher's Summary

A collection of poignant, relatable essays from the author of Never Have I Ever about coming out in her late 20s, entering into her first relationship, and figuring out what it means to be an adult.
When Katie Heaney published her first book of essays, chronicling her singledom up to age 25, she was still waiting to meet the right guy. Three years later, a lot changed. For one thing, she met the right girl.
Here, for the first time, Katie opens up about realizing at the age of 28 that she is gay. In these poignant, funny essays, she wrestles with her shifting sexuality and identity, and describes what it was like coming out to everyone she knows (and everyone she doesn’t). As she revisits her past, looking for any "clues" that might have predicted this outcome, Katie reveals that life doesn’t always move directly from point A to point B - no matter how much we would like it to.
In a warm and relatable voice, Katie tackles everything from the trials of dating in New York City to the growing pains of her first relationship, from obsessing over Harry Styles (because, actually, he does look a bit like a lesbian) to learning to accept herself all over again. Exploring love and sexuality with her neurotic wit and endearing intimacy, Katie Heaney shares the message that it’s never too late to find love - or yourself.

Critic Reviews

"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." (Mallory Ortberg, author of Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters)
"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)
"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 frolicking 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)
