Description

A daring, funny, and poignant novel about the desire and duty to procreate, by one of our most brilliant and original writers.

Motherhood treats one of the most consequential decisions of early adulthood--whether or not to have children--with the intelligence, wit and originality that have won Sheila Heti international acclaim, and which led her previous work, How Should a Person Be?, to be called "one of the most talked-about books of the year" (TIME magazine).

Having reached an age when most of her peers are asking themselves when they will become mothers, Heti's narrator considers, with the same urgency, whether she will do so at all. Over the course of several years, under the influence of her partner, body, family, friends, mysticism and chance, she struggles to make a moral and meaningful choice.

In a compellingly direct mode that straddles the forms of the novel and the essay, Motherhood raises radical and essential questions about womanhood, parenthood, and how--and for whom--to live.

About this Author

Sheila Heti is the author of ten books, including the children's book A Garden of Creatures, and the novels Motherhood, which was shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and How Should a Person Be?, which New York magazine deemed one of the "New Classics" of the twenty-first century. She was named one of the "New Vangaurd" by the New York Times book critics, who, along with which a dozen other magazines and newspapers, chose Motherhood as a top book of 2018. Her novels have been translated into twenty-four languages. She lives in Toronto.
