Featured in Elle’s “Books To Read This International Women’s Day” and Cosmopolitan’s "Best Books To Sink Your Teeth Into".


A young woman moves from the countryside to the city. Inexplicably, inexorably and immediately, she falls in love with another woman for the first time in her life. Finn is nineteen years older than her, wears men’s clothes, has a cocky smirk of a smile – and a long-term girlfriend. With precision, wit and tenderness, WOMEN charts the frenzy and the fall out of love.


“One of the hottest and saddest and best books I’ve ever read.”
—Zoe Kazan, actress and playwright

Women

Women is a novella that explores an affair and the aftermath between two women nineteen years apart. The book is about the blurred line of female friendship, about being a daughter, a mother, a woman, and a friend. It’s an urgent recall of a heartbreak and a stark identity in crisis.


Available from Hobart, Powell’s, Amazon, & The Strand.
Ebook available from Emily Books.


“Women by Chloe Caldwell is a beautiful read/a perfect primer for an explosive lesbian affair/an essential truth.”
—Lena Dunham

I'll Tell You in Person

I’ll Tell You in Person is a candid and captivating account of attempts at adulthood and all the less-than-perfect ways we get there. Disarmingly frank essays on sexuality, celebrity, acne, wanting to write, and the eternal what-should-I-do-with-my-life. Exploring the boundaries between friends and family, hobbies and obsessions, and honesty and oversharing, Chloe Caldwell showcases an irresistible talent for navigating the infinite territory of in-between.


Purchase from Coffee House, Emily Books, Powell’s Books, The Strand, IndieBound, or Amazon.

“Heady, evocative and sensual. Caldwell’s exploration of relationships and identity blends brutal and fragile truths with great skill. A remarkable talent.”
Anneliese Mackintosh, author of Any Other Mouth

“Her books are poetic, intimate page-turners, and demonstrate Caldwell’s knack for slicing through the bullshit. One of the most endearing and exciting writers of a generation.”
Los Angeles Review of Books

“Proving herself an invaluable voice in queer literature.”
—OUT Magazine

“Chloe Caldwell is one of our great stylists, one of our most candid and electric voices. Caldwell has the rarest gift: Her writing has charisma. I would follow it anywhere.”

“Women is a book of raw emotion and wrenching introspection.” —Barnes & Noble

“Chloe Caldwell’s slim and sensual novella, Women, defies labels. It is not merely a love story, or a story of sexual awakening, or a coming out story, but a story about two women wrecking each other’s lives during an illicit whirlwind romance.”
Fjords Review

“Women 
captures the agonizing luminescence of young adulthood and the people who define and destroy us. It is one of the only books I can name that deals exclusively with female characters, with men pushed so far into the periphery they’re practically in orbit. It is a breathless comet-book that commands an evening with your heart, and a next-day pass-along to all the women you treasure.”

“The type of book that is tempting to describe as a bible for young women.”—Nylon
“Caldwell is refreshingly regular and, German sojourn notwithstanding, unspoiled. Not once does the word ‘internship’ appear.”—The Village Voice

“Caldwell writes about babysitting as John McPhee writes about rivers.”—Vol. 1 Brooklyn
“This book kicked my ass, heart and brain. It’s wildly entertaining and deeply loving. A heroic triumph in intrepid self-observation. A testament to the heights and depths the personal essay can reach. Caldwell shows how, in writing about ‘nothing’, we can discover the everything.”—Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals

“Chloe Caldwell has written the ideal “female companion book”—meaning, while reading, I felt like I had a female companion with at all times. On the subway, I had my female companion. In my backpack, I had my female companion. On the sidewalk, I held on tight to my female companion, and pedestrians would stare at her, so boldly yellow in my hands. Pretty soon my female companion took up residency in my head. She helped me process the world with sass, spite, sympathy, and wit. I don’t know what could be better than a book that allows you to be alone but to never feel lonely. I’ll Tell You in Person does this and more. It projects the most potent afterglow, and Caldwell is a writer beyond gifted and generous. She is like a sage. ”
—Heidi Julavits, author of The Folded Clock
