Would You Rather : A Memoir of Growing Up and Coming Out

A collection of poignant, relatable essays from the author of Never Have I Ever about coming out in her late twenties, 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 that she is gay. She 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 shares the message that it's never too late to find love--or yourself....

Would You Rather : A Memoir of Growing Up and Coming Out Reviews

  • l.

    It’s comforting to know there are more women out there who assumed they were straight, didn’t date men but never wondered why, and then realized one day, hey I’m actually a lesbian.

    I didn’t think too much of the book though tbh.

  • Tony Snyder

    Extremely relatable and Katie is like a best friend you can't help but root for. Also, if you haven't read her novel "Public Relations", every music groupie is in for a treat!

    Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for providing a free electronic copy of this title.

    With a publication date of March 2018, I read an advance ebook of this coming out memoir by Katie Heaney, a young white woman who didn't realize she was gay until her late-ish 20s. This title is actually Heaney's second memoir - the first was a story about her relationship inexperience as she entered her mid-20s, which covered how she'd never dated or had a relationship with a man, and was written while she

    I have never in my life related to anything as much as this. I don't think I'll ever find words to describe what listening to this memoir meant to me. A lot of the essays actually freaked me out because that experience could've been written about me. EXACTLY like that.

    I can already feel this having a huge impact on me and I finished it just a couple of minutes ago. I'm incredibly grateful this book somehow found its way into my life.

  • Tori

    I sat on my review of this book for half a week, because I was so emotional after I finished reading it.

    Katie Heaney and I have a lot in common. I've had a boyfriend--but ten years ago. Since then, I've had little to no interest in dating, despite feeling like I should. Her talk with her therapist about how most people don't feel dread when it comes to dating was illuminating to say the least. While I don't identify as a lesbian, I didn't realise I was bisexual until late in my twenties, so see

    "Would You Rather?" was a refreshing set of memoirs and essays by Katie Heaney. Heaney had already written a book about her dating misadventures, and I definitely want to read that after reading this one. In "Would You Rather?," Heaney grapples with her dating mishaps, losing her virginity late, and guys not appealing to her - because in her later twenties she finally figured out that she'd much prefer dating women. Heaney made me laugh and made me cry with her otherness, and made me feel like I ...more

    Buzzfeed profiled this book a couple of months ago and had a sample of the book to read in the article. I was immediately charmed by the author’s voice and the similarities to my life.

    I’ve never met anyone else in my real life who came out in their late 20’s or took so long to figure out they were gay. I will, however, blame that on a heteronormative upbringing and call it good. Either way it is fun to see yourself reflected in what you read, especially when it happens with such infrequency.

    So

    A REALLY excellent follow-up to 2014's "Never Have I Ever." It was fascinating to read about Katie's journey of self-discovery and (sorry to use this annoying phrase) self-actualization. Funny, perceptive, and well-written -- I honestly tore through this one.
