Reading Women

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

Interview with Gail Honeyman

We were thrilled to chat with Gail Honeyman, author of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. Gail shares a little about the origin of the memorable title character and what it’s been like publishing her debut novel.

Check out our Patreon page to learn more about our book club and other Patreon-exclusive goodies. A special thanks to our patrons Amy B., Carley T., Deborah W., and Stephanie W.
