''Set This House in Order: A Romance of Souls'' is a fantasy/mystery novel by Matt Ruff, published in 2003.

[[NiceGuy Andrew Gage]], created [[YoungerThanTheyLook two years ago]], is the public face of a [[SplitPersonality multiple personality]]. There are hundreds of souls in his head. In the world outside, Andy works on ambitious, but unlikely, virtual reality projects.
There, new programmer Penny Driver turns out to be a multiple personality, too, and the boss wants Andy to help her. Several of Penny's other souls ask for help, which Andy finally, reluctantly, agrees to give, thereby setting himself on a path that threatens the stability of his house.
