A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND TOWN & COUNTRY BEST CELEBRITY MEMOIR OF 2023

"As actors, Dern and Ladd have spent decades peeling back layers to reveal their characters' fears and desires. It's when they turn that focus to each other and themselves that something remarkable emerges."--New York Times

A collection of deeply personal conversations from award-winning actress and activist Laura Dern and the woman she admires most, her mother--legendary actress Diane Ladd.

What happens when we are brave enough to speak our truths to the ones we love the most?

Laura Dern and Diane Ladd always had a close relationship, but the stakes were raised when Diane developed a sudden life-threatening illness. Diane's doctor prescribed long walks to build back her lung capacity. The exertion was challenging, and Laura soon learned the best way to distract her mom was to get her talking and telling stories.

Their conversations along the way began to break down the traditional barriers between mothers and daughters. They discussed the most personal topics: love, sex, marriage, divorce, art, ambition, and legacy. In Honey, Baby, Mine, Laura and Diane share these conversations, as well as reflections and anecdotes, taking readers on an intimate tour of their lives. Complementing these candid exchanges, they have included photos, family recipes, and other mementos. The result is a celebration of the power of leaving nothing unsaid that will make you want to call the people you love the most and start talking.
