Product Details


“Set against the backdrop of an AI pioneer’s murder, Whoever You Are, Honey is built on simmering tensions at the precipice of boiling over, marked by a distinct strain of techno-pessimism endemic to someone who grew up during the rise of Silicon Valley. The twin themes of women’s loneliness and desire are the timeless beating hearts of Olivia Gatwood’s debut novel, propped up by of-the-moment ruminations on queerness and artificial intelligence.”Vogue, “The Best Books of 2024 So Far”

Whoever You Are, Honey reads like a thriller, but it’s also a tender and searching exploration of what it means to inhabit a female body. The characters—wounded, wounding, and longing for a better world—will catch you up and carry you along with them.”—Kelly Link, author of The Book of Love
“Here’s a novel about the vastness of feeling and friendship—their unruliness a brilliant counterpoint to the glazed screens and aspirations of the modern world.”—Anna Metcalfe, author of Chrysalis
“Sharp, captivating, and apt—an intimate, pitch-perfect fable of the time, I immediately went back to the start.”—Yrsa Daley-Ward, author of The Terrible

“As lush and hypnotic as a dreampop album, this is an intoxicating debut about two women, each carrying a dark secret, who desire more than they’ve been allowed to want.”—Leigh Stein, author of Self Care

“A gorgeous, haunting, tender story of women finding different kinds of love and solace in each other, Whoever You Are, Honey looks directly into the deep, dark depths of what makes us alive—and what sustains that life. I loved every minute of it.”—Gabrielle Korn, author of Yours for the Taking

Whoever You Are, Honey is a gripping, heartfelt novel—a moving exploration of unconventional friendships and the desire to be accepted and loved, not in spite of but because of our flaws. Every page sparkles with insight about human intimacy, the stories we project onto one another, and the courage to push past first impressions to a deeper, more complicated understanding.”—Kate Folk, author of Out There

“Lush with desire, pleasure, and the deep longing for connection that underlies everything we do, Whoever You Are, Honey makes the familiar new; the everyday is made sensuous, rich, and jewel-bright.”—Claudia Cravens, author of Lucky Red

“With a poet’s precision and a tremendous amount of heart, Gatwood’s debut is at once a cutting cultural critique and a twisted, tender love story. I didn’t want it to end, and I know it’ll stay with me for a long time. The Stepford Wives for a new generation is finally here in this gripping, immersive, and uncanny novel.”—Jenny Fran Davis, author of Dykette

“Olivia Gatwood’s writing is lyrical, eerily propulsive, and addictive. This is the type of novel I’m always hoping to find—I couldn’t put it down.”—Amy Taylor, author of Search History
